From the founding member of Grammy Award-winning country music band Little Big Town, discover the heartwarming true story of a family's Christmas miracle. Cover includes sparkly Christmas glitter!
All Daisy wants for Christmas is a little brother or sister. Her parents have tried everything to make her dream come true, but nothing is working. So Daisy takes matters into her own hands, praying every day and writing a letter to Santa Claus about her one and only wish.
Daisy's parents are touched by her strong belief and grateful for her help, but as they explain, sometimes you have to wait. God will give you the perfect gift when the time is right.
In this heartwarming holiday tale, Kimberly Schlapman shares the true story of the Christmas when her family became whole.
Schlapman, a founding member of the band Little Big Town, writes from the heart in her debut children's book, in which a girl modeled on her daughter Daisy shares her parents' longing for a new baby to join their family. Frustrated when wishing and praying fail to bring her a sibling, Daisy decides "it was time to take action." With Christmas approaching, she mails Santa a letter pinpointing the sole item on her wish list. Her father urges her to be patient, reassuring her that "God will give us the perfect gift when the time is right." After an email affirms that the time has come, mirroring Schlapman's real-life story, the family welcomes a newborn, whom they name Dolly. Readers may well be confused by the infant's sudden appearance though a background sign at one point reads "Adoption Agency Christmas Party," the child's provenance is never explicitly mentioned in the text but Huff's candy-colored digital images underscore Daisy's sincerity, and a portrait of the real-life sisters adds sweetness to this earnest story.
