Under a Living Sky by Joseph Simons

Mary is certain that her parents are giving her new shoes for Christmas, but the Depression has hit her Saskatchewan farming family hard. Mary tries to hide her disappointment when she receives a crude homemade doll instead. She ends up liking the doll much more than she expects, but the doll fuels the rivalry between Mary and her older sister, Judith. Then, when the doll disappears a few weeks later during a snowstorm, Mary and Judith's relationship changes once again.

A warm story with undercurrents of tension and distress. Mary, her tormenting sister and her struggling parents, are very real, and their life during the Depression will give many opportunities for parent (or grandparent) and child discussions about food, technology, poverty. This book is engaging for an adult, even without a child to read to.
