THE DAY THEY GAVE BABIES AWAY

The author's story of a family incident, told for his small daughter, is a natural for a Christmas tale, and tells how young Bob ""gave away"" his brothers and sisters in accordance with his dying mother's orders. There is childish faith and adult responsibility, and the emotion is never mawkish, for the sentiment is unadorned and restrained.
