One cottontail’s winter adventure teaches us about the true magic of Christmas.
’Twas the day before Christmas, and all through the house, Jack the Bunny was stirring; courage he must rouse. He has miles to go on a treacherous trail, for his family in their burrow awaits him there.
Jack’s Christmas, a classically rhymed Christmas tale by Logan native J. Paige Straley, follows Jack as “he scales the hill, he runs the crests, down to the hollow without a rest.” Each stanza is brought to life by Jason H. Whitely’s charming illustrations, inspired by photos of West Virginia.
At last, Jack “lands in the burrow-hall and shakes the ice-crystal from his paw.” This satisfying story is perfect for a hearth performance on a cold winter’s night and reminds readers of the true magic of Christmas: “The doors flung open, he’s welcome in. It fills his heart that he’s here again.”
