David's Christmas Wish by Lisa Reinicke

All he wants for Christmas is a goldfish.  Forget the other presents.  Just get him a goldfish.  They did but it died right before Christmas...

The author shared a copy of this book with me for review (thank you).  It has been published and you can grab a copy now.

The only thing they can do is try to buy another one.  However, they're in the middle of a blizzard.  Dad can't even find the car.  So he dresses warmly and sets out for the pet store...

The story is cute and heartwarming.  Scot McDonald's illustrations make the snow feel cold.  This story is based on something that happened in the author's own family, so that makes the story even more special.

You might want to buy a goldfish to go with this book as a gift for a child.  Then the child and David can both be happy.
