Kurzbeschreibung

From Storybook Advent Calendar

A charming story about giving and the simple things in life was inspired by a folktale about that orange that seems to appear in Christmas stockings each year. Thomas and his parents leave England in 1824. Tragedy strikes and despair and destitution follow, but warmth and love are returned from a simple orange. This is an instant classic and beloved by all who read it!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Two tissues up 8. August 2011
Von Annie B - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I was on the lookout for something to read to my little one when I ran across this story. I love reading about Christmas anytime of the year, and this short story was a perfect escape from the heat. This is a wonderful inspirational story for people of all ages. Thomas loses his parents on his voyage to America, but he gains a whole new one at the orphanage. His Christmas at the orphanage brought both tears of sadness and joy to my eyes.

It really is a heartwarming, inspirational story. I loved how the orange symbolized freedom to Thomas's father and this was passed on to him through the taste of the orange. I was completely enthralled by the children's response to Thomas's harsh punishment on Christmas. It's so easy to get stuck believing the worst of people. This story is a great reminder of, among many other things, of the sweetness of children and the good in all of us.

I will be reading more of these stories. I know my little one will love it when he is just a little older (I'd say this story would appeal to children 7 years and up, mine's a little younger). Highly recommend as a quick, heartwarming read for children and adults alike!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Quite Uplifting 17. August 2011
Von Donna - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

I loved the way this story shows that if each of us gives even just a little bit, it adds up to quite a lot and even little things, to someone who is hurting, can mean so much. This is a perfect story for illustrating what I profess.

2.0 von 5 Sternen quick read 3. Februar 2013
Von julia Buckner - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
nostalgia made this short story delightful to read. Books like this are available for free online. I'm kicking myself now for spending money on this. It is poorly laid out and the "illustrations" seem more like fillers to me. Don't waste money on this. There are better versions of the story online
for free.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Decent Retelling IF You Can Find It in All of the Advertising.... 23. Januar 2013
Von 4Nbahu - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
First I would like to say that the story is very well written, the problem was that it was so buried in advertising the full book of "Storybook Advent Calendar" as well as some music. I have no issue that I get a free story as an incentive to purchase an entire book, as they authors have given a complete story.

My issues lie with the layout and illustrations of the story. As for the layout I had to hunt for the beginning of the story. Once I discovered the beginning of the story the formatting using multiple hard returns between each paragraph unnecessarily increased the number of page turns. It made the book seem amateurish or perhaps like a high school student trying to complete a 10 page story when she only has 7 pages of writing.

The other issue is that this is a children's story, I would think 8 years and above. That age group may not require a photo per page it still requires several full page illustrations. What the reader gets is 4 probably well done illustrations but they are so small as to make the point moot.

So if you want a well written poignant story with major flaws, get this. However, as this story is a retelling so you might be able to find it retold better elsewhere.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Not What I Consider an Uplifting Chrismas Story 15. Januar 2013
Von rscholmes - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I found the story to be more tragic and sad than uplifting. It was well-written and interesting and a good story, but the ending didn't bring enough good for me to outweigh the tragedies in the story.
