Annie and Willie's Prayer was written by Sophia P. Snow in 1884 and has since become a family tradition for many. It's a heartwarming story of how two children help teach their father the true meaning of Christmas.
When I saw this title pop up I was so excited. I was almost afraid to hope that it would be the story I remembered from my childhood but it was, and it was absolutely perfect. Thank you so much!

This is told in the format or twist on The Night Before Christmas. The father of Willie and Danny has been harsh, he's told him them that there is no Santa Claus.
Willie and Annie have trust and have faith and they pray for the things they hope Santa will bring. This is a quick little story, less than 10 minutes, that brings out one side of Christmas.
I don't feel I can share anymore without spoiling this very short story.
Willow J. Scott's narration was very good.
There is barely anything here to review, but it is a clever little story. Please judge accordingly. *I received this in exchange for my review.

Please consider "following me" here on Audible.com. I purchased a lot of books by authors that I am faithful to. I also have the opportunity to review books in all genres, many that I would not pick up on my own. I have been pleasantly surprised by new authors and narrators. Thanks.
