Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Now with a new cover and new size (8 11/16" x 7 7/8"), The Christmas Miracle of Jonathan Toomey (1995) by Susan Wojciechowski, illus. by P.J. Lynch, pairs what PW's starred review called an "elegant, poignant" story, about the spiritual reawakening of a bitter man, with richly detailed watercolors of an early-American setting.
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
The story of Jonathan Toomey, a widower who has withdrawn from the world, only to be brought back to rejoin life by a widow and her son, is a true Christmas treat. The touching story is made more poignant by Lynch's illustrations. His opening pictures of Toomey reveal a man in the shadows-grumpy and sad. As he and the young boy spend time together, the colors lighten and life brightens. A tour de force by author and illustrator.

    Life Lessons in a Story

    When shopping for a new Christmas book for the children we came across this and fell in love with it. Every time we read it or play the CD, it brings heartwarming tears to our eyes. Its lessons of sadness and joy are things we need to face and deal with in this life, and this story has been a help in doing just that.

    My Boys Love This Book

    I have read this book every night to my boys since the first bedtime we read it. We may read other books along with it, but we always have to read 'pish-posh'. I think I could recite it by heart now - a wonderful heart-warming book!! Great giggles from my boys with an underlying faith . . . I LOVE it!!
