Adapted from a classic Christmas short story by Nobel Prize-winning author Pearl S. Buck, this beautiful gift book allows readers of all ages to share a heartwarming story about awakening the simple joy of Christmas.

Remembering a special Christmas from his childhood, Rob wants to get his father a Christmas gift that would truly show his love and appreciation. But it's Christmas Eve, and living on a farm far away from stores limits his options. He knows the best gifts aren't necessarily purchased but come from the heart. Suddenly, Rob has an idea, one that will require him to get up very early, before four o'clock, to milk the cows so his father won't have to.

Fifty years have passed since that special Christmas morning, and Rob wants to feel that true joy of Christmas again. With his children grown and the house empty, Rob thinks of his wife and feels an overwhelming need to show his appreciation to her. But it's early Christmas morning. What gift could he give to express his love for her and revive their joy?

This adaptation of Christmas Day in the Morning features beautifully designed pages and festive imagery throughout the book.
