The Christmas Surprise
Late one Christmas evening, eleven-year-old Margie traipsed through the woods to meet her best friend, Edna Mae, to share their Christmas surprises. Each year the girls met to show each other their best Christmas gift. This year, Margie was sure hers was the best. After all, how many girls got a piece of Florida for Christmas? But Margie is disappointed to see that Edna Mae received something even better, something Edna Mae can't, or won't share--skates.
What are the girls to do? With one orange, one pair of skates, and two girls? Find out in this sweet tale about two girls living in 1938 Wisconsin during the Great Depression.
