The Christmas Gift

"A few days before Christmas, Panchito's family decided it was time to move again." So begins the Christmas tale of a young boy whose migrant family is struggling to make ends meet. Based on the childhood experiences of author Francisco Jim&eacuate;nez, the beautiful story and paintings capture Panchito's loneliness, as well as his parents' devotion to their children and each other.
