It's Christmas time in 1896 Cripple Creek, Colorado, and Ruby May Oliver and her donkey, Maude, roam the streets in search of Maude's missing foal. Along the way, Ruby comes upon four people in need of gifts--gifts she discovers she can give. This gentle tale, enhanced by evocative illustrations by Nate Jensen, is a great read-aloud or independent read for grades 2 thru 4.
Readers who have enjoyed the antics and adventures of Ruby May OIiver and her donkey, Maude, through the award-winning Ruby and Maude Adventure Series, are in for a treat with this heartwarming story as Ruby enters more and more deeply into the true spirit of Christmas.
