Christmas Oranges

Christmas Oranges by Linda Bethers and Ben Sowards  is a wonderful story about friendship and holding together despite difficult circumstances. 

Young Rose is punished severely for a tiny infraction, and is not allowed to have her one present of an orange on Christmas morning.  How her friends get around this, and ensure that she has a wonderful Christmas in spite of her punishment, is very heartwarming.

I enjoyed this story and recommend it highly as a story to be read at Christmas time, or at any time during the year.
