Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

There is never snow at Christmas on the African plain. It is always hot and the riverbed is nothing but dust. Families sleep on floor mats waiting for Father Christmas, dreaming of relief from the heat. They have come to cherish the simple gifts he always brings. In this adaptation of the Clement C. Moore poem, the Shangaan tribe receives something much more precious than material goods. With a glossary and combination of African languages, this story shares how the true message of the season comes to every country and brings hope to all people. The first printing of the book was released in 2004 to a wildly receptive audience. The story was adapted into a musical and is used by many schools for Christmas concerts. The South African edition of O, The Oprah Magazineselected the book as one of its "Favorite Things" for Christmas in 2005.

Synopsis:

On Christmas Eve, Father Christmas arrives in a donkey cart pulled by six kudu and a black rhino to deliver toys, sweets, chickens, and more. Can he also bring the rain the area desperately needs? Every book sold supports a child at the Sparrow Schools, which assist disadvantaged, learning-disabled youth in realizing their full potential.
