Tumbleweed Christmas by Beverly Stowe McClure, is a sweet story that depicts the true meaning of Christmas.
Tumbleweed Christmas teaches the reader that love is more important than material things. In the story, we encounter Jackie, whose desire is to do something special for her family. Much to Jackie’s dismay, her dad is sick in the hospital, and the family has very little money.
Jackie heeds her mother’s advice about Christmas being a time for miracles. In search of a miracle, she comes up with a solid plan to surprise her parents and sisters.
The part of the story that tugs at my heart strings is the way Jackie comes to the aid of her best friend Daniel, who is having troubles of his own too. The two of them together go off to find the perfect miracle.
The colorful artwork by Bridget McKenna brings the story to life and they complement the story very well.
