What a perfect read-aloud for December! I didn't realize when grabbing it that this book was set in Paris around Christmastime.

I loved the writing, and the illustrations by Garth Williams. My 9yo, 7yo, and 5yo all enjoyed this quick read and would like me to buy a personal copy.

It tells the story of a homeless "hobo" who lived under a bridge, and a family of a mother and her three children who were also without a home.

A caution, the book refers to a group of Roma people as "Gypsies," and I took it as an opportunity to talk about why that is a slur. ( )

Oh, how I loved this book! These are my favorite Garth Williams illustrations, and that is saying a lot. The story is simply wonderful...and it paints a magical picture of Paris--not the shiny images that you see in tourist photos, but a rich atmosphere with real characters. This is a oldie but such a goodie!
