Part of the "American Girl" series, Kit lives in 1934, during the Great Depression. This tale, the third installment of Kit's story, takes place during a bleak Christmas season. Kit's father has lost his job and the family may soon lose their home. Kit's best friend, Ruthie, tries to make things better but Kit's stubborn pride keeps her from accepting Ruthie's gifts. The friendship is threatened until Kit learns to see Ruthie's point of view. Kit also helps her family through a rough spot with determination and hard work and Christmas retains some of its glow after all. A description of life during the Depression appears at the end of the book. 2000, Pleasant Company, and $5.95. Ages 8 to 11. Reviewer: Dr. Judy Rowen

A noise sounds in the underbrush. A kit with thickish fur and a bushy tail hides. She has powers. She can create ice and snow, and winter-related things, besides control part of the winter, but it is getting out of hand. An ice snowflake shape is under her on the ground, and icacles sprout from the ground, pointing away from her, like a barrier. She sighs heavily and cries silently, her tears freezing before they hit the ground, and shatter on her ice snowflake. She knows she will never be wanted. (Quick description: 3 moon old kit with thick snow white fur and a bushy tail. Her eyes are a rare bright sapphire blue, but others consider it ice blue. Her powers are ice and snow.)

She looks at the kit, horrified. "Who would do this to an innocent kit?!?" She yowled. She quickly took the kit to the nursery.
