A story of sacrifice to bless a loved one.1/17/18 Read with Naomi & Julia.

Set during the Great Depression, this story is a re-imagining of O. Henry's "The Gift of the Magi," only featuring a mother and daughter instead of a couple.

Sweet, tear-inducing story inspired by an old classic. I do wish that the pictures were spread out better within the written pages for my 6-year-old's sake. However, it still had the rapt attention of my 6 and 8-year-old sons. This book is worthy of an adult's reading clear down to a mature picture book reader.

This is a sweet story (perhaps a bit too sweet and bland for my tastes) and is a nice re-telling of "Gift of the Magi." Of course, it's predictable for adults, but children would probably be surprised by the gifts that Mama and Grace give each other. Nice, gentle story with fabulous illustrations by Jim Burke.

The Story of the Magi never grows old in whichever form it is told. Very endearing.
