The children in Millie's family can't wait for Grandma to arrive with her special Christmas Apron. According to tradition, each child will write down the gift he or she wants most in the world and then slip that wish into the apron's pocket. Then, on Christmas morning, those wished-for gifts will be magically waiting under the tree. But eleven-year-old Millie overhears her parents: the family can't afford gifts for all the little ones. She pictures the disappointment on her siblings' faces: nothing to open on Christmas morning. Is Millie willing to sacrifice her own whole-soul wish so that someone else's can come true? Full of tender emotion and delightful surprise, this story reminds us of the miracles that unfold when we think of others before ourselves.
