Description
Eleven-year-old Emma is disappointed when she learns her mother, a doctor, has to deliver a baby on Christmas Day. But when she arrives with Mama at the house, Emma realizes she isn't the only one whose Christmas has been interrupted. Young Hansie and Will are sad about missing the holiday and anxious about their new sibling's arrival. Overcoming her own feelings of frustration, Emma works to create a special Christmas that the two young children won't forget.

With warm pencil-and-watercolor illustrations, this Christmas story offers a glimpse of life on the prairie in the 1800s. And, like Emma, young readers will be reminded that easing someone else's pain can often help ease their own.
