Publisher's Description

A New York Times bestseller!

One of America's most prominent and personable politicians shares his mischievous side in a heartwarming story of a childhood Christmas.

Mike is desperate to get a football for Christmas. Then one day in the middle of December, a box that looks the exact right size appears under his family's Christmas tree. Mike just can't handle the temptation! He convinces his sister Pat that they should open their gifts and play with them THIS INSTANT. And that's what they do.

But on Christmas morning, the muddy football gives them away. After talking about the real meaning of Christmas and how some things are worth waiting for, Mike and Pat learn the benefit of patience, making the following Christmas more delightful than ever.

    I really wanted to like this book, and up until almost the last page I did. Unfortunately, the line " ... open presents ahead of time, that means the real joy in Christmas will disappear," was so disappointing to me that I can not recommend it.

    I read this to a group of school age daycare kids and they also really liked the story and illustrations, but after that stinker of a message I spent the next 10 minutes talking about how the true joy of Christmas (the saving grace of Jesus Christ!) can never disappear. It actually made for some good discussion, but I was terribly disappointed that this was the message this book wanted to send. It could have really ended well, with a TRUE and accurate message about Christmas, but it just came off as another secular "feel good" kind of book with no truth to speak to the heart.

    Gov. Huckabee missed a wonderful opportunity with this story.

    I was a little disappointed in this book---it was just okay!! If I could have read it before I ordered it, I would not have ordered it.
