The Star Child

Published by NorthSouth Books

There was once a young girl whose only possessions were the clothes on her back and a piece of bread some kind soul had given to her. 

But even these few things meant much to others less fortunate than herself; and in selfless love, the girl gave away the little that she had. 

In this beautiful Grimm fable, it is truly more blessed to give then to receive.
