The Christmas Miracle of Jonathan Toomey

Thursday, December 17, 2009


We have loved the children's book entitled The Christmas Miracle of Jonathan Toomey for many years now.  Now there is a movie based on the book...I am not sure when the movie came out, but as soon as I found out about it I put it on our Netflix list.

The movie doesn't disappoint!  We loved it!  The story is about a widower (Jonathan Toomey) who is a wood carver. He is asked by a widow and her son to carve a Nativity set. The outcome is heartwarming and life changing for Jonathan...who comes to admit that Christmas is not "pish-posh".  You will just have to read the book or watch the movie to see what I mean!
