Grandma, Grandpa, Richie, Patricia, mom, and dad wanted it to be a good last Christmas at the farm. But Richie was not believing in Santa. Will Patricia and Richie believe?

My favorite character is Patricia because she loves Christmas just like I do. I relate to this story because I had a last Christmas at my old house. I felt excited about the story because I wanted to know what "gifts of the heart" really meant.

I recommend this book because it is exciting to find out why Richie is not believing. I recommend this book to people that like autobiographies and Patricia Polacco books. I think this would interest the reader because many people like Christmas.
