The Light of Christmas

By Richard Paul Evans
Picture Book

High in the mountains lies the town of Noel, surrounded by beautiful white walls and a great silver gate. Every year Alexander and his mother walk the long distance to Noel to watch the lighting of the village Christmas tree. This year Alexander learns that the Keeper of the Flame will choose the person who has given the truest gift of Christmas to light the flame.

The Light of Christmas takes you on a journey to the town of Noel, and meanwhile a lesson is taught that it isn’t what you have to give, but how you give of yourself that matters most.
