It’s Christmas time in 1896 Cripple Creek, Colorado, and Ruby May Oliver and her donkey, Maude, roam the streets in search of Maude’s missing foal. Along the way, Ruby comes upon four people in need of gifts—gifts she discovers she can give. This gentle tale, with water color illustrations by Nate Jensen, is a great read-aloud or independent read for grades 2 thru 4. Readers who have enjoyed the antics of Ruby, her donkey, Maude, and cat named Trouble in the award winning Ruby and Maude Adventures will enjoy the addition of Maude’s foal, Willy in this heartwarming Christmas story.
