The Christmas Wind by Stephanie Simpson McLellan (120)

This is a Christmas story with serious overtones. It is a story that celebrates the goodwill of people in times of need.

Jo is a young girl who helps her mother and baby brother on a cold Christmas Eve. She searches for a place to stay, but none come to her obviously. Her mother is ill, and the baby needs to be fed.

After searching everyone, they only find an old barn owned by a local farmer who has a reputation for being a curmudgeon. He is also known as a solitary grouch. Nobody cares about him.

Jo doesn’t trust him to care for her family at frist. However, he does eventually prove to be less of a threat. He makes the family a warm sanctuary in his home. When the wind finally dies down on Christmas morning, peace comes to them all.

The artwork is just breathtaking. Every page spread should be a painting.

This is a story about a reminder of the original Christmas story. The story is breathtaking in-depth and breath.

I loved the book and will be recommending to all the kids and families that I know in my midst.
