A charming story about giving and the simple things in life was inspired by a folktale about that orange that seems to appear in Christmas stockings each year. Thomas and his parents leave England in 1824. Tragedy strikes and despair and destitution follow, but warmth and love are returned from a simple orange. This is an instant classic and beloved by all who read it!

"WHY DIDN'T SOMEONE DO THIS BEFORE?" "Storybook Advent Calendar makes me think "Why didn't someone do this before?" It's uplifting, educational, and celebratory for adults and children. I especially like the entry for December 7, which explains the similarities and differences of Christianity, Judaism and Islam in a simple, profound and beautiful way."-- Tina B. Tessina, Ph.D, psychotherapist and author of 'Money, Sex and Kids: Stop Fighting about the Three Things That Can Ruin Your Marriage (Adams Media 2008)

"I just love the concept and the execution. My grand daughter loved the stories and I can't stop listening to the carols. You deserve every success." Cliff Lague, Spain "I am awestruck with the book's warmth, its caring and loving sentiment, and totally enamored with the artwork!" --Jeri Friedman Los Lunas, NM
