Johnny wants his little brother Liam’s first Christmas at their grandparents’ farmhouse to be special. After all, Johnny has so many wonderful memories of past holidays spent in New England: the smell of cookies baking, the snow glittering in the trees and the wooden horse he loved when he was Liam’s age. Johnny told Liam all about the horse and promised that it would be waiting for him under the tree on Christmas morning, but the horse is missing. How can Johnny make his brother’s Christmas wish come true?
Mary Higgins Clark’s loving story together with Wendell Minor’s captivating paintings make The Magical Christmas Horse a book that families will cherish as part of their Christmas tradition year after year. (Ages 4-6)

I loved this book. The story is about love, caring, even listening when a child tells you something very important to them. I love the beautiful illustrations as well. You can feel what this child is feeling just be looking at the picture! I bought this book for my grandson for Christmas this year.
I absolutely loved this book!! I bought it for my 2 granddaughters who are both 3. I haven't given it to them yet because the book came damaged and I had to order another one. So I'm thinking about giving each of them one next Christmas. I truly think this is a story that they'll treasure forever. They may not think of it a lot as they're growing, but when they're married with children of their own, they'll remember this book. I know they will because there's one Christmas book that I remember from the time when I was a child. And I didn't even think about it until I had children of my own. I recommend this book to anybody with small children.
