A delightful and meaningful story about a boy named Joe and his powerful wish to Santa. Joe and Santa have had a few misunderstandings in the past.
So, this year Joe, is really careful when his writes his letter to Santa. This is a charming holiday story to read aloud.
Beautifully illustrated by H.B. Buck Lewis, Elizabeth Cody Kimmel, spins this tale with warmth, humour and delivers the message be-careful-what-you-wish for.
