Claire is not so happy as Christmas approaches and she misses her father. He doesn't live with her and her mother any more. Her mother has a Christmas project helping "Santa" refurbish old dolls to give to children. As Christmas approaches and Mother and Claire work together, they make new traditions and adjust to life without Claire's father.
This was a sweet story with full-page, beautiful illustrations.

I did not realize when Alice picked this book that it would be about a girl's first Christmas with her mother after her father has left them. It was sad, and I hope Alice doesn't think her daddy might leave her. The story was also very beautiful. The mother finishes her shift as a nurse to come home and bake cookies and repair dolls to give to the poor for Christmas.

A story of mothers and their daughters, making Christmas memories while daddy is away (I am presuming he is in the service) and the wonderful feeling of making things from your heart to give to others.
