Beautiful Christmas story!

by Tarissa on Oct 6, 2014

My new favorite Christmas story!! Truly, I'd recommend it to all ages. The story is simple, created for children, but it's one of those tales that any age could be warmed by the morals upheld. "It was very early Christmas morning, and in the stillness of the dawn, with the soft snow falling on the house-tops, a little child was born in the Bird household...." Carol Bird is a Christmas child. She grows up, even sickly and bedridden, always honoring Christ on His birthday first, even though it is her birthday as well. This little girl displays so sweetly the true meaning of the holiday, giving as much of herself as she can manage. Such a bittersweet story, sure to capture the reader's heart. "The Birds' Christmas Carol" was written in 1886 by American authoress, Kate Douglas Wiggin. This is a tale that has stood the test of time, and is still relevant today.


A precious book, my first remembered book

As a child in first grade, our librarian read this to my class..... Wow I was hooked on reading and have bought this book for my children and grandchildren.... It awoke a tender little space in my heart and taught me empathy....

I love this story. Having heard or red it every Christmas for as long as I can remember, it has become a part of my Christmases. Carol Bird, who was born on Christmas morning, plans and makes a special Christmas with the help of her family and Uncle Jack for the ?Ruggleses in the rear? in honor of her 10th birthday. I find myself laughing as well as shedding a few tears as I reread this story year after year. I would recommend it to any age.
