KIRKUS REVIEW

This aimless story of how a large farm family proceeds from one Christmas to the next never quite jells. The father offers a prize to the child who prepares the most original gift to please Christ on the following Christmas. Teeny, the youngest and most troublesome of the brood, presents the empty sugar gourd as her offering, announcing that it is really filled with love. Primarily a religious story with many quotations from the New Testament geared for beginning readers.
