Each year, Mr. Owl's class donates new and gently toys for needy families. This year, Franklin cannot decide what to give. The only toy he will part with is his more than gently used truck. Franklin has three more days to donate. The next day he receives a gift from his Great Aunt Harriet, who knows how to give special gifts. Excited over the present, Franklin forgets all about a gift for the toy drive. On the eve of the third and final day, Franklin's Great Aunt visits. Finally, Franklin gets to open her gift. Franklin's time with his aunt inspires him take action.
Franklin's Christmas Gift is an inspiring story of love, giving, caring, and sharing. Children will learn the true meaning of Christmas - giving is better than receiving. Franklin found that his gift to Great Aunt Harriet gave him as much joy as it gave her. This is so true, especially this time of year. Picking out that one-of-a-kind gift, then watching the recipient open it, can be exhilarating. That feeling is the cause of cries heard in every home with a child. "Open mine! Open mine!"
The illustrations are Christmas bright; happy and joyful hues of green, red, blue, gold, and other sparkly colors. The drawings are cute. The words are an inspiration. I liked the tone of giving and the uncertainty Franklin shows in not wanting to part with any of his treasures. The items that we have, the things we collect, become more important than people do.Read more ›
The importance and joy of giving is beautifully portrayed in the book. In this story, Mr.Owl reminds the children to bring toys (new and gently used) for the toy drive and as Franklin looks through his toys, he finds it hard to give away even one of his special toys. As he postpones the giving, he watches his friends donate wonderful gifts. When he realizes his toy might be the only gift someone receives, he also realizes that what he thought was special earlier will not work. Finally, his great aunt Harriet's words inspire him and he has the perfect gift to give away - which is both loved and almost new. He realizes that giving can make you feel not sad but all warm and good inside, better than even receiving.
The illustrations are bright and cheerful and the text just perfect for younger kids, as always with Franklin books.
My daughter was thrilled when she understood that the toys she has donated this year at various toy drives will light up some other little girl's face who would not have had a gift otherwise (I am just glad she did not question why Santa would not give them a gift, though I had an answer for them and hoped it would have worked!). I said that the little girl will thank the person who gave her the gift in her heart and you will know it!
This book is a definite `read many times over' book in our house.
Disclaimer: I received this book - Franklin's Christmas Gift - through NetGalley for a honest review.
Franklin's Christmas Giftt is an excellent addition to the Franklin series. The students relate to the familiar stories and the beautiful illustrations. Christmas Gift helps students understand the joy of giving, using well-known characters. Pre-K through second graders will enjoy this addition to Franklin.

Another great "Franklin" story about sharing what you have to make others happy. Featuring the same sort of warm illustrations as other books in this series and a neat character --- Franklin's Great Aunt Harriet.
