The Christmas Gift by R. William Bennett is a wonderful tale of forgiveness and understanding. Although the actual Christmas gift is an important aspect of this story, this novel is a must-read at any time of year. I would highly recommend it not only to adults looking for an inspirational story, but also to kids who have dealt with the difficulties of misunderstandings and bullying in school. I'd say it would be appropriate for ages 10 and up as it does involve a child's death. It is a very quick read ~ I read it in one sitting within about an hour. It's short, but offers a wonderful message.
My Rating: 4/5
