New Book Helps Children Stop and Think about Their View of Christmas

Teaches children where God fits in and how not to overlook the gift of God's only son


MAITLAND, FL—Jennifer Williams Leathe’s new book A Wonderful Christmas After All ($11.99, paperback, 9781498484336; $5.99, eBook, 9781498484343) tells the story of Emily, who just loves Christmas and all the fun that comes with it: covering the tree with ornaments, baking beautiful cookies, listening to carols—she just couldn’t wait. But this year is different-nothing is going her way! Join Emily as she finds the gift that makes it a wonderful Christmas after all.


Leathe says, “A Wonderful Christmas After All is a book that children will be able to identify with as it is told from a child's perspective and deals with common events in family life around the Christmas holiday. The Christian message about God's love for us is presented as Emily survives several disappointments. Christmas is a holiday that can easily be overshadowed by commercialism and traditions. The gift of God's Son to us can easily be forgotten if we are not careful.”


Jennifer Williams Leathe is a graduate of Gordon College in Wenham, Massachusetts, as well as

New York Medical College in Valhalla, New York. She is a pediatrician in private practice in Beverly, Massachusetts, and is the mother of three. She appreciates the unique way in which children view the world and believes this appreciation allows her to be a better children’s author.
