Eight-year-old Lucy Turnbull knew better than to wish for a pony that Christmas in 1937. Her mother had assured her in no uncertain terms that asking for a pony was the same as asking for the moon. Besides, the only extra mouths they needed at their boarding house were the paying kind. But when an interesting pair of strangers comes to town, Lucy starts to believe her Christmas wishes might just come true after all.
The Christmas Pony is a sweet, quick-to-read Christmas story. The characters are fun, and their interactions make for a delightful Christmas story. Lucy's youthful perspective keeps the story fun, in spite of the struggles the adults around her experience. Her story reminds readers to never give up on hopes and dreams -- especially at Christmas time!
I recommend The Christmas Pony to help you get into the Christmas spirit!
