      Very cute story that explains a family's Christmas traditions. Not only is it the family tradition but actually the tradition of the author's husband.

      This book reflected and embraced my Swedish heritage. But, even more than that, it taught that love sometimes requires sacrifices. This book is warm, and inviting, and the story draws you in and makes you feel for the characters. I would love to read this book to my classroom one day. Maybe I would use it in a unit that teaches how different cultures celebrate Christmas, or maybe I would use it to teach my students about what it means to really love someone. This is one of my favorite children's [...]

      This is a very endearing Holiday story that would be great to add to your yearly holiday reading. Don't have to be a child to enjoy it or the lesson that Ms Lewis instills in the book! Illustrations are wonderful as welley tell the story almost without the words of course together make one really good Christmas story.

      It is more blessed to give than to receive. Beautifully illustrated story that shares the beauty and power of those nine words. Every child in Sweden wants to find the almond in their bowl of rice pudding on Christmas Eve and be able to make a special Christmas wish. For ten long years--all of her life--Annika has dreamed of discovering the almond in her own pudding. Will this be her year?

      I read this to my children as part of our Christmas reading during morning time.The illustrations were beautiful. We enjoyed learning the Scandinavian Christmas traditions as the author weaved them within the context of a sweet story.Definitely a memorable book. I appreciated the author's biblical perspective.

      The Scandinavian story of the almond in the rice pudding eaten on Christmas day is good in itself and the illustrations of Pamela Querin makes the book exquisite.

      This book shares the swedish tradition of hiding an almond in the rice pudding. This is a wonderful Christmas story. "She knew that the almond could bring smiles and laughter, but only God could make a miracle." I loved this quote. The art work is beautiful.

      Fun read aloud. Good lesson in giving to others. However, it makes it sound like God only answers the prayer of the one with the almond.
