The Christmas Miracle of Jonathan Toomey, written by Susan Wojciechowski and illustrated by P.J. Lynch, is one of our favorite Christmas books. The story is meaningful and embodies the true spirit of Christmas. It touches both young (not too young, though, maybe 5 and up) and old. As I read it, I want to be more understanding of others, more kind, giving, and considerate. The illustrations are beautiful works of art that also contribute to a desire to be more Christlike at this time of year when we celebrate His birth.
There is a movie adaption of this story, but I haven’t seen it yet. I would like to, particularly after seeing the trailer.
