Description
In Peter H. Reynolds's whimsical holiday story, young Roland learns that more isn't always better -- and rediscovers the magic of home. Roland can't wait for Christmas Day, and when the morning finally arrives he races downstairs to see what is waiting for him. What he sees stops him in his tracks. Could that tiny present really be what he had waited all year for? It has to be the smallest gift he had ever seen! So Roland wishes for something bigger . . . and bigger . . . and bigger. But he's still convinced there must be a bigger gift somewhere in the universe. Will he know it when he sees it? Peter H. Reynolds's spare, free-spirited illustrations and heartwarming text make this be-carefulwhat-you-wish-for story the perfect holiday gift.
