Synopsis of the Children’s Christmas Book Small, Medium & Large
A lonely little girl makes preparations for Christmas. This includes writing Santa Claus a letter not asking for the typical hot item toys that most kids do, but for some special kind of companionship. On Christmas day, there are three beautifully-wrapped gifts around the tree for her that have come in small, medium, and large boxes: a Siamese cat, a retriever, and a miniature pony. These pets give the little girl what she wants most: companionship while all of them partake in such wintertime activities like sledding, making snow angels, throwing snowballs, building snow creatures, and even sitting in front of a fire.
I strongly recommend this children’s Christmas book because the story, which doesn’t have a lot of text, but uses nicely-illustrated and winter-themed pictures (created by the author Jane Monroe Donovan) to convey the meaning of having animals in one’s life for friendship and companionship. Furthermore, the book’s message seems to make the case of having this during the holidays because, too often, people seem more preoccupied with getting together with their human loved ones during the Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s. The old saying that goes “a picture is worth a thousand words” definitely applies for this book that’s 32 pages in duration. One can’t help but be touched by seeing such illustrations involving a cat and horse making holiday-themed cookies in the spirit of togetherness.
