Flashback Tuesday: The Christmas Miracle of Jonathan Toomey by Susan Wojciechowski illus by P.J. Lynch
The Christmas Miracle of Jonathan Toomey by Susan Wojciechowski and illustrated by the wonderful P.J.Lynch is a very special book to me. I remember reading it for the first time when I was putting it out for display. It is the kind of perfect story that I love to read especially at Christmas time. It is sad, poignant and joyful at the same time. While I miss the original cover art I still love the illustrations.
Whenever I look at the illustrations I get an ache in my heart because they are so beautiful. This is truly a must have book that should be read every year at Christmas. It crosses generations!
