Booktalk: O’Henry’s “The Gift of the Magi” retold for kids as a Christmas and Hanukkah story…
Hanukkah was almost here and Stella wanted to give Boris something special. She shook her savings bank upside down. Only a few coins fell out. How could she give Boris something special if she only had a few coins?
She looked around her little apartment. All she had of value was a pine tree from her family’s farm in Italy. Her papa had given it to her when it was a seedling. It reminded Stella of her home and family during Christmas.
