When his agent suggests he volunteer with Moments for Miracles, a charity that grants wishes to kids with life-threatening illnesses, Jake agrees with a half-hearted shrug, never expecting to be contacted.

A bone marrow transplant is Tate's only hope for survival, but a match has yet to be found. While they wait, Delaney plans to see Tate’s special wish to spend a day with his hero—NFL running back Jake Taylor—is granted. Though Delaney has reservations about pairing her son with the player who’s collected more than his fair share of negative headlines, she writes to the Moments for Miracles Foundation, pleading for their help.

My Review  

God's Gift is about learning what Christmas and Hanukkah are really about. Christian and Jacob have the wrong ideal about Christmas. They both learn what the true meaning is. Teaching them to treat others as God treats us. (love) Loved the book. Great for Sunday school class also. The kids will love the well illustrated book by Dan Sharp and the wonderful story lesson by Lee Ann Mancini.  Ages Pre-school to age 6.

My Review

I loved this story book for children. Christian story about having a heart like God.  Well written educational and inspirational children's book. The illustrations are wonderful. Very colorful to draw the attention of the children. Illustrations are by Dan Sharp. In the story first day of school and we all know how that first day away from mommy is. Charlie is very shy just wants his mommy. Miss Stella tries to get him out of hiding. Love all the little characters. Teaches children to pray.  Wonderful for pre school to 6 years old.
