Children of Christmas: Stories for the Season is a book of 6 stories, all quite sad, full of melancholy but yet redemptive with unique happiness for the characters in the stories. Children of Christmas: Stories for the Season is beautifully written, but this is not a storybook for young children. Amazon lists it as for grade level 4-6, but I can also see it as being discussed in a higher grade literature class.

Not bad stories but the endings could have been better . Was rather disappointed on the left up in air feeling with the endings .
