The Third Gift - Linda Sue Park and Bagram Ibatoulline

A young boy follows his father from tree to tree, watching him collect tears of sap to sell at the market. Finally, the boy is allowed to collect a tear himself. Carefully, he pulls the fist-size drop of sap from the tree and carries it to the spice merchant’s shop, where three wise men are searching for a gift for a baby who has just been born. The boy’s myrrh is The Third Gift (Clarion, $16.99), the perfect complement for the wise men’s gold and frankincense. Linda Sue Park imagines another side to the Christmas story in this picture book illustrated by Bagram Ibatoulline. Ages 4 and up. - Dana Chidiac
