A difficult time for a family in the
country brings about lessons in suffering and God’s love in author Elizabeth K.
Howell’s new children’s book, The Christmas Bird. 
The Christmas Bird follows the
adventures of a little bird when his tree home is hauled from the woods and
placed inside a cozy cabin to become the family’s Christmas tree. 
The family had recently experienced
adversity when their youngest child, Maggie, fell in the woods and lost her
mobility. Many times past, Maggie had visited the forest and sang beautiful
Christmas carols to her doll and a hidden audience of woodland animals. With no
more visits from Maggie, the Christmas bird tries hard to fill the void by
whistling the tunes he’d heard her sing. The family’s choice to have the
Christmas bird’s tree as their Christmas tree allows the stowaway to witness
decorating the Christmas tree and listen to Papa read the Nativity Story. Most
of all, the family’s love and care for Maggie is a sight to behold. When Santa
visits later that night, the bird learns that Santa’s gifts are good, but God’s
gifts are better! Throughout the story, we learn that God loves all and has
great plans for each of us, even tiny birds.
