A delightful book with fabulous illustrations about a kind-hearted affluent man who demonstrates his gratitude to the people of Appalachia by returning each Christmas to drop gifts to the children from a train. The story comes full circle when one of those children grows up and demonstrates his gratitude in service to the same community.
This is a treasure! One of our personal favorites!!!!Read aloud to the whole family at Christmas time.
