Grandpa Christmas

A snowy story. A love letter. A Christmas wish for a better world. This wintry delight by two master talents is all of those things – and so much more. It’s Christmas – and what is Grandpa giving little Mia? Not a card. Not a present. (She’ll have plenty of those.) Instead he’s sending a letter which contains a precious message – one she’ll remember for the rest of her life. He remembers fondly the times they spent in his garden, planting seeds and finding frogs and worms. But Grandpa worries that the things they love so much are in danger. In his letter, he makes a heartfelt plea to Mia to care for and protect our beautiful world…
