Here's a delightful Christmas book with attractive, winter-inspired illustrations--a wonderful gift for a child to find beneath the Christmas tree. It's Christmas morning, and a little rabbit named Pocket is playing in the snow with his brothers and sisters. But when the other rabbits hurry to the skating pond, Pocket stays behind, lost in thought. He is wondering about the meaning of Christmas. When Pocket sees a trail of tiny footprints he decides to follow them through the snowy woods, hoping that they might lead him to discover Christmas's meaning. Pocket follows the footprints all the way to a cozy cottage, and it is there, on the cottage doorstep that his Christmas wish comes true. Beautiful color illustrations on every page perfectly capture the mood of this gentle Christmas story.
