The Legend of the Poinsettia

The Legend of the Poinsettia

Long ago in a village in Mexico there was a family with a father, a mother and three children one of whom was named Lucida. Lucida helped her mother take care of the younger children and she helped with the chores. One day Padre Alvarez came to their casita and asked senora Martinez, Lucida's mother, if she would use her gift of fine weaving to make a new blanket to cover the figure of the Baby Jesus in the Christmas parade. Mama started working on the blanket. The legend continues with Lucida caring deeply about giving the blanket but not being able to finish it when Mama falls ill. But for those who give with their hearts, miracles are possible. 32 pages Ages 5-9
