The Christmas Miracle of Jonathan Toomey

A1onwoZye5LThe Christmas Miracle of Jonathan Toomey by Susan Wojciechowski is a classic from the ’90s and another of my favorite Christmas children’s stories. It’s the tale of a grumpy wood-carver who is asked to carve Christmas figures for a widow and her son. As he carves the pieces, the widow’s son points out the significance of each piece with a child’s innocence.

The story is beautifully illustrated by P.J.Lynch and appeals to all ages. It would make a wonderful Christmas gift – which is how we came to own it. Thank you, Jan and Mike Terry!
