Description

Jake Gets the Best Christmas Gift of All: The Gift of Family!
In this beautifully written holiday story from a Newbery author, a ten-year-old boy discovers that families come in all shapes and sizes. Jake and his widowed mom have always been just fine on their own. But when Jake's mom ends up in the hospital with a broken leg, the grandfather Jake barely knows comes to stay, and brings his nightmare dog, Max, with him. Jake is sure that his Christmas is ruined, until a makeshift new family of friends and neighbors helps Jake, his mom, and his grandfather celebrate their best Christmas ever.
Perfect for fans of "Because of Winn-Dixie", this heartwarming true-to-life story celebrates the importance of family and community. Readers will fall in love with the wise and endearing young narrator, and the story is ideal for reading aloud as a family or class.
