To begin the holiday season ESL-Voices has added a wonderful new story to our Classic Short Story Library. This little known short story is by Pearl S. Buck entitled ‘Christmas Day in the Morning’. As always there is a full lesson plan and Answer Key. See below. Enjoy!
“Christmas Day in the Morning [by Pearl S. Buck] is as gorgeous as the day it celebrates. And unlike so many other presents, the real gift isn’t the book itself, it’s the simple, pure message. If you give anything this year, give love.” ~Jason F. Wright, New York Times best-selling author of ‘Christmas Jars’
“In this adaptation of “Christmas Day in the Morning” Rob looks back on his boyhood and remembers giving an unusual gift of self, a gift that filled him with Christmas joy. Now, fifty years later, Rob realizes he can still give a gift from his heart.”
