The young narrator of Christmas Makes Me Think is thrilled with the holiday's prospects: the presents he's wishing for, the big tree he's hoping to get, the cake he'll bake with his grandmother. But he begins to wonder. What about the people who don't get presents, or don't even have a place to live? He soon realizes that he can make a difference by giving some of his presents to kids who have none. Chandra Cox's bright collage art adds beauty to Tony Medina's thoughtful message about community and caring.
