HOLIDAY HANDBOOK 2012

What’s a Gift You Would Like for Yourself & a Gift You Would Like to Give Someone Else?…

During the holidays, it’s not uncommon for parents to remind their children of a famous quote, “It’s better to give than to receive.” With that old adage in mind, we asked local school children what they would like to receive for the holidays, and what they would like to give, as well. The children responded with big hearts… Note: The children’s words are published as they were written, in English or Spanish, complete with misspelled words and no punctuation. We enjoyed reading them just as they were and hope you do, too.
