Overview

The only home little Rose has ever known was the orphanage, but Mrs. Hartley cares for all the children as if they were her own. Then Mrs. Hartley dies, and Rose is sent to a new orphanage, which is as cold and cruel as her previous home was kind. Gradually Rose makes a few friends, and she learns from them that every Christmas a generous neighbor donates a box of oranges for the children.

In a charming retelling of this well-loved story, author Linda Bethers brings to new life the spirit of Christmas . . . and of love.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
This illustrated gift book for all ages tells the classic story of the "Christmas Oranges," in which a young orphan girl named Rose discovers the spirit of generosity that lies at the heart of the holiday. When Rose is eight years old, an epidemic forces the closing of her beloved Greenwoods Orphanage, and she is shipped to Irongates, an austere, loveless institution run with Dickensian cruelty. Headmaster Crampton punishes Rose severely for a tiny infraction, decreeing that she miss the special treat of an orange on Christmas morning. How the other children circumvent his instructions to safeguard a glorious Christmas for Rose is the sweet message of this story, which is beautifully illustrated by Ben Sowards. (Oct.) Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.

    A new annual tradition

    This is the type of story I like to read at Christmas time, it helps me to remember the true spirit of Christmas. I believe both adults and children will enjoy this story and its message. It is just the right length to be read and re-read; it will become part of my annual tradition.
