The Christmas List of Richard Lindsay (Hardcover)
Out of Stock, but we can likely order it for you. We will advise if we cannot.
Based on the true story of a boy who brought Christmas to the people he loved during hard times. Young Richard wonders if Christmas will come this year. Money was tight for most families in 1933, and the Lindsay family was well-acquainted with hardship. Richard asks his widowed mother about how they can afford Christmas, but she reassures him that their family has everything they need. Without a Christmas turkey, they will have the fat red rooster from the chicken coop. "What about the rest of Christmas?" Richard asks. "Where will that come from?" Richard gets an idea, and with his mother's help, he comes up with a plan to give gifts to all the people he loves. This beautifully illustrated picture book by noted newscaster Bruce Lindsay and award-winning illustrator Dan Burr brings to life a meaningful story about the joy of giving and bringing happiness to the people you love at Christmastime.
About the Author
Bruce Lindsay was in the second grade when he wrote his first Christmas story for The Plymouth School News. His pursuit of writing led to a career in journalism as an Emmy Award-winning broadcaster. Decades of presenting current events to large television audiences never brought him more satisfaction than reading Christmas stories aloud to his children did. Bruce received an BA from Brigham Young University and an MBA from the University of Utah. His favorite places to write are on a ship or on a train or in the shade on his back porch. Dan Burr is an award-winning illustrator. He started his career working in oils on canvas or panels but has since achieved the same texture, realism, and attention to detail using digital painting processes. He earned a master's degree in illustration from Syracuse University. When he is not working on a project or fishing, he can usually be found puttering around his home in Idaho with his wife or in his boat shed working on one of his wooden drift boats.
