The Birds' Christmas Carol
A heart warming and wrenching story about the true meaning behind the spirit of the season. WARNING: Sad ending! Carol is our main charactor and named thus thanks to her day of birth. Christmas Day, as the birds were singing, the clock was ticking, and the choir was sending tidings of great joy, the Birds family added their Christmas Carol. As sweet and loving a baby was never seen, but as with things that seen to good to be true, tragedy strikes. Young Carol is very ill and confined to her room for all occasions. Knowing inwardly that her times draws short, she sets out to spread the joy of the season with a family known and yet unknown to them all in an effort to keep the spirit of the season alive.
Touching yet sad, this book is listed as Children's or Young Adult. While the message can be enjoyed by any age reader, I'd have a box of tissues handy.
