Making a list and of course checking it twice her main goal is a wish for a sick friend that she hopes will get better real soon.

Brooke imagines visions of elves and flying reindeer and St.Nick delivering gifts in her head. This book and this heartfelt story focuses on something we all need to do more of and that’s inspiring the gift of kindness and giving to others.
Brooke was thrilled that her Aunt Bea came and her prayers from the night before she hoped would be answered and she wrote her list for her aunt to see. But her main wish was for her friend Mike hoping that his heart gets stronger as she and her aunt pray his battle’s won.
Her visit to Santa was amazing. Santa had a huge smile on his face and she said told him her wish: Santa beyond wealth , I wish him strength and better health.
The excitement was there and Brooke could hardly sleep and she thought she heard a faint small scream. What could that be? A surprise was near her tree a small red box with a gold tag marked ,Brooke Lynn. You won’t believe what was inside and you will understand why her mother was filled with pride.
A message we all need to read and embrace: while you’ve been positive and kind, have faith no one is left behind. If you believe and trust all year, you’ll feel a change in you, my dear.
What does this mean? Did she get her bike? Did her friend’s heart get stronger? What gifts did she get?
Would you want a material one over one that grants kindness and hope?
“The treasures come in every size, when hearts are opened through one’s eyes. Do you agree!

Williams and illustrator Corrina Holyoake have taken Brooke Lynn’s messages to both adults and children to s much higher level proving that kindness and hope are equally as valuable or even more than material gifts.
