Hardie draws on a family tradition to teach children that giving to others makes Jesus happy. Sam’s excitement about the upcoming holiday and his curiosity about the “Sparkle Box” on the mantle are believable, if saccharine, as is the way in which he and his mother alternate their family’s preparations with charity for the needy. Kornacki paints wonderful outdoor scenes that make readers feel the cold of the homeless man on a bench, and indoor scenes effulgent with family love. A sentimental and preachy counter to holiday commercialism. A Sparkle Box for readers to use is included. Ages 6–10. (Oct.)
