The True Gift by Patricia MacLachlan

If you are looking for a Christmas story that celebrates the joys of family and community, look no further! The main characters in this short novel, siblings Liam and Lily, are spending time with their grandparents during December and Liam can’t stop thinking about the lone cow in his grandparents’ meadow. Is it lonely? Does it have feelings? How can he get a companion for the cow? The answer will involve some sacrifice, and the ending gave me chills. This is a feel-good Christmas story that explores what makes a true gift.
