Franklin's Christmas Gift - Paulette Bourgeois

Released November 2011 (Kindle Edition)

I have a soft spot in my heart for Franklin the turtle. Of all the children's shows my kids insisted on watching, Franklin was one show I didn't mind joining them. It's been years since I last read Franklin's Christmas Gift, but I love it now just as much as I did then.

Franklin's school is holding an annual toy drive, and every student must choose a toy to give to a child in need. He's excited, but after going through his toy box, he can't part with anything. Time's running out for Franklin to learn the true meaning of giving. Will he find a toy in time?

While many children look at Christmas as a time that Santa magically appears and brings presents, Franklin's Christmas Gift helps to show them that not every child is that lucky. It delves into the true meaning of giving. What Franklin learns is done so in a non-preachy manner so most children should happily accept the message and put that lesson to good use.

If you're looking for a special Christmas story this year, Franklin's Christmas Gift is available in hardcover, paperback and now for the Kindle.
