The Gift of the Magi Recommended age range: 9+
For Jim and Della the excitement of Christmas Eve is overshadowed by their financial hardship. Della has saved every penny she can and only has a $1.87 to show for it. Her long beautiful hair, the pride and joy of her husband Jim, could be sold to the wigmaker, but what would Jim say? Would Jim still think she is beautiful without her flowing locks of thick hair? But what sort of gift can she buy for Jim with only one dollar and eighty-seven cents?
Jim has one possession he is proud of, a shiny gold watch; a watch passed down from his grandfather to his father – and now to him. If he sold it he could afford something special for Della, but can he bring himself to sell such a valuable family heirloom?
Written in 1906 by the master of the short story, O. Henry captures the true meaning of Christmas like few storytellers ever have. This unabridged edition featuring custom art and optional voice over, will transport you to that snowy day in December over a century ago. So grab a warm blanket, a cup of hot cocoa, and discover this classic again with someone you love.
