Synopsis

The Spirit of Christmas A Tradition of Giving by Nicky Benson

It's Christmas! There'll be carols and candy canes and sparkling presents under the tree! But what about children whose families have no presents to give? Kind-hearted Drew wants to help them - but how? A magical story of how one little boy got a very special Giving Bag from Santa - and how his Christmas wish came true... Join in this charitable holiday tradition and enjoy the true meaning of Christmas. This gorgeous gift set includes a beautiful giving bag for your child to fill with toy donations for charity, and a keepsake bell from Santa to hang on your Christmas tree. With wonderful illustrations from Harry Potter illustrator, Jason Cockcroft, this stunning picture book set encourages children to think about giving to others at Christmas time.

About the Author

Nicky Benson was born and raised in Chicago. She studied Communication at Northern Illinois University where she met her husband, Brad. Nothing makes Nicky happier than spending time with family and friends, rummaging through a flea market, and cuddling in a book nook with her son, Drew. She now lives in St Charles, not far from her hometown of Chicago. Jason Cockcroft was born in Auckland, New Zealand, and raised in Leeds, West Yorkshire. He graduated from Falmouth School of Art in 1994 and has since gone on to illustrate many children's books, including the last three Harry Potter books. An accomplished watercolour artist and portrait painter, his work has been exhibited across the UK. The Spirit of Christmas is his first book for Little Tiger Press.
