the christmas miracle of jonathan toomey

Cleaning - and I love looking at old children's books.  I rediscovered one of my favorites - The Christmas Miracle of Jonathan Toomey, by Susan Wojciechowski.  it's about a grieving (and grumpy) widower's road to newfound happiness, by way of carving a Christmas nativity set for a widow and her son (okay, bad description but you get the picture...).  Whenever I read this book I end up in tears.

The illustrations are goregous, too - by P.J. Lynch.
