From Our Editors

As Addy’s classmates prepare for the Christmas season, she begins to miss her family. When Addy and her mother fled to the North to escape slavery they left their loved ones behind. Instead of focusing on their particular situation, the Walker’s help others with their limited savings. In Addy’s Surprise, they are rewarded with the best gift ever!
