    Ten pages. Sweet but hokie story.

    I would not have downloaded this if I had known it was a ten page story. It was cute if you like short fairy tales, but not what I was hoping for.

    A Sweet Story

    This is a very nice short story. Something you can read quickly to yourself or out loud to someone else. It does have religious reference, as it should, since it is a christmas related story. The story and its message could be used to prompt further sharing and discussion.
