Product description

Review

PRAISE FOR The Lost Gift:

"Graegin (How to Share with a Bear) creates sweeping expanses of moonlit snow for the animals to traverse under midnight blue Christmas Eve skies, creating an atmosphere of quiet magic as the animals discover the rewards of doing a kind deed."  --Publishers Weekly

"The little animals are a charming group, each displaying a specific personality trait that contributes to the group's dynamics. Captivating illustrations use pencil-and-ink washes to create a delicate atmosphere of snow-covered trees, midnight-blue skies, and shadows in snowy fields. A delightful, quiet story with a subtle theme of giving to others as a gift in itself."  --Kirkus Reviews
 
"Listeners and readers will empathize with the characters’ emotions, captured in friendly, digitally colored pencil-and-ink-wash illustrations. The writing is simple yet expressive. And for those readers hoping to land on the 'nice' list, the story’s last line may resonate the most: 'Santa always knows.'" --Horn Book Magazine
