Christmas present from a stranger will be cherished
Here's a story with a happy ending.
On Sunday, Nov. 16, Lifestyle shared readers' memories of their favorite childhood books in celebration of Children's Book Week.
One reader, Cindy Lauffer of Waynesboro, Pa., called to tell us about a small book she loved as a child, "Under the Saskatoon Tree." She mentioned that she doesn't remember the author and has searched without success to find a copy of the little book that had such an impact on her.
It tells the story of animals in the forest gathering to play and have a good time under the Saskatoon tree on a gray, rainy day. They had fun despite the weather, and Lauffer said she believes that kids wouldn't mind gray, rainy days if they could read this book. She doesn't.
