Publisher's Description

Few characters embody the spirit of Christmas more fully than Kate Douglas Wiggin's Carol Bird. This classic Christmas story by the author of Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm features a child as memorable and charitable as Dickens's Tiny Tim. Born on Christmas Day, Carol is the Bird family's special Christmas baby. As her tenth birthday approaches, declining health threatens young Carol's life. Her only concern, however, is for the happiness of the less fortunate neighbor children, for whom she plans an unforgettable holiday celebration. Since 1888 this bittersweet holiday classic has been cherished by generations of young readers, reminding them of the true nature of Christmas through a child's joyful and generous spirit.

Author Bio

Few writers have made such an impression on so many generations of readers as Kate Douglas Wiggin (18561923). Ms. Wiggin spent her childhood in Hollis, Maine, a place very much like Rebeccas home. A devoted advocate for early childhood education, she, along with her sister, Nora, founded a school for kindergarten teachers, as well as the Salmon Falls Village Library, which still serves as the town library for Hollis.

    THIS IS A BOOK THAT I DID NOT READ UNTIL I WAS AN ADULT, BUT IT BECAME VERY PRECIOUS TO ME. IT IS A SWEET STORY, WHICH EVOKES FEELINGS OF WHAT CHRISTMAS IS ALL ABOUT. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS BOOK. MY DOG ATE MY COPY, WHICH WAS AN ORIGANAL(FROM THE 1800'S), AND I HAVE WANTED TO REPLACE IT FOR YEARS. I'M SO GLAD I FOUND THIS SITE.
