On Christmas morning, a magnificent, red-wrapped gift sits underneath the tree. But it isn’t for Esme. And it isn’t for Bear. So they set out to find the rightful owner. Little do they know that it’s the greatest gift in all the world.
A heartwarming Christmas tale about the magic of friendship.
The Most Wonderful Gift in the World has become one of my favourite Christmas books.
I was immediately drawn to this book from the cover, which is adorable, and the description just sounded like a lovely tale of friendship and Christmas magic. I was not let down in the slightest when I read this book because it lived up to and exceeded all expectations. The illustrations inside are even more lovely and the story was even more heartwarming than I could’ve imagined! If I could find one fault with the book it’s that I’d like it to be printed on matte paper. Other than that, I can’t think of one reason not to love this book!
There are so many picture books about friendship, but this one really stands out as something special as it really shows what friendship is. The story is perfect for Christmas with its setting and meaning, and I for one will be reading it lots over the festive period!
