Christmas Stories

Christmas For a Dollar

It’s 1931 in Bakersfield, California. America is in the midst of the Depression, and the Kamp family is struggling to get by, especially after Mrs. Kamp’s untimely death. Now, with her mother gone and her father overwhelmed by doctor bills resulting from her brother’s polio, little Ruthie expects another Christmas without presents or festivities. But when her father brings home one dollar in change and lets the children use it to buy special gifts for each other, the Kamp family comes to find that money isn’t what makes Christmas full of joy, love, and miracles.

 The Missing Christmas Treasure

Gather young ones around to enjoy this delightful rhyme of one child’s search for his favorite Christmas treasure. Could it be something yummy eo eat or something warm to wear? Is it outside with the snowman or up in the pear tree or in Santa’s sack? Children will love the guessing game that concludes when the boy finally finds the treasure and fits its pieces together, creating a beloved scene that brings comfort, joy, and the true meaning of Christmas to his heart – a scene that will do the same thing to you as well.
