  1. Emily-Jane Hills for Reader’s Favorite

    All David wanted for Christmas was a goldfish. His parents were pleased with the purchase, but on Christmas Eve, the goldfish died. Mom was frantic. She wanted David to receive the gift he had asked for. Dad said he would go to the pet store before it closed. The only problem was the blizzard outside. Dad tried to shovel out the car, but it was no use. So he walked through the snow drifts, arriving just as the store was closing. Then he trudged back home, the purchase safely tucked inside his warm coat.

    Lisa Reinicke has written a charming Christmas story in David’s Christmas Wish. Written in rhyming meter, the poem unfolds much like the much loved and very famous poem, “Twas the night before Christmas.” Only this story, also about a night before Christmas, is about David’s parents, determined to grant their son his one wish for Christmas. The plot develops with warmth and humor, much like the magic of Christmas in “Twas the night before Christmas”. “To the edge of the sidewalk, to the end of the street,/ Mom watched as Dad faded in snow which was deep./ On to the pet store he practically flew,/ to save Christmas was something he knew he must do.” And, the grand finale: “They went to the top of the stairs very silent,/ to look in at David asleep and so quiet./ “We’ll always be near and remain within touch,/ Merry Christmas little man, we love you much.”

    Not only does this delightful story capture the imaginative mind of a child, it also shows children how much parents love them and are willing to go to great lengths to grant their every wish. Just as our Father in Heaven will do for all of us. Complete with lovely illustrations by Scot McDonald, this story has the potential of being a popular Christmas treasure for children, young and old. For aren’t we all children at heart?

    David’s Christmas Wish is the story of a boy dreaming of getting a goldfish over anything else, for Christmas.
    This was a perfect story for my son. He is 7 years old and I had him read this to me. Its right at his reading level. After he finished, I asked him for his thoughts on the story, the illustrations and anything thing else he wanted to point out. He told me he liked the story a lot and was glad it all worked out for David in the end. He laughed out loud at the illustration of David’s dad standing in the snow with nothing but white surrounding him.

    The only reason why I didn’t give this a five, is because my son still believes in Santa. Now there is enough proof in his mind that Santa is real so he didn’t even question why David’s parents were going out in a snow storm to get the fish. I was afraid this was going to be an issue and I immediately started to come up with excuses in my mind should he ask. I realize that this was based on a real event in the authors’ life but I want to keep the magic alive for my son as long as possible.

    Overall this was a very cute story and I would recommend it to K-2 readers.

    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.

    David’s Christmas Wish is a children’s book about little David who wanted nothing more for a goldfish for Christmas, that reads more or less like a retelling of ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas, that is also written using rhyming meter, which is no surprise as it seems Reinicke loves to incorporate rhyme schemes into her children’s books.

    The story itself is a story that is nonetheless about perseverance without directly saying that perseverance is the theme of the story. Why? David’s dad did not give up on getting David a goldfish, even when he had to walk to the pet store, that was already closed.

    I have to say, I wasn’t a huge fan myself of the illustrations, but I feel like they would be enjoyable to children, which makes sense, being it is a children’s book.

    All David wants is a goldfish for Christmas. His parents discover that the goldfish that they had gotten him didn’t make it. So the dad goes out in a snowstorm to get a new one.

    This is such an adorable Christmas story to read to your kids. My kids really enjoyed it, and have read it several times with and without me. I love that it rhymes and that it comes from a real experience. Kind of made me laugh thinking about how the dad walked through a snowstorm to get a new one. Very cute story that is great not only for Christmas but all year.
