A True Christmas gift

A short story with a happy ending. Good way for families to talk about what it means to give.

disappointment

this is the first time I've been this confused. I used my last credit to buy a beautiful Francis Rivers book called the ship. I own many of her books and enjoy them all. this isn't even a book it's three chapters of things I personally didn't understand. so knowing that I would stay away from it. first bad review I've had to write.:-(

Beautiful Christmas story!

A beautiful story through the eyes of a child. This is a story about how one little boy understood Jesus.

So little so disappointing

I pay for audible because I enjoy listening to books. Before you purchase a book you should announce it is a 20 mins story which most of it is in the Bible.

Great story of love!

A story of a child’s faith shown in his interaction with others. Jesus wants that from us! Just a child’s faith!

I Wish It Was Longer

The shoebox is a fantastic story. The Final third of this audiobook is a recitation of the New Testament’s nativity story. Of course, I love the nativity story but in this context it felt like filler when there should have been more original content.
