Review: The Lost Gift by Kallie George & Stephanie Graegin

The Lost Gift: A Christmas Story


“Graegin atmosphere of quiet magic as the animals discover the rewards of doing a kind deed.”—Publishers Weekly

“A delightful, quiet story with a subtle theme of giving to others as a gift in itself.”—Kirkus Reviews

A cheerful choice for lapsits or storytime.”—School Library Journal

“Listeners and readers will empathize with the characters’ emotions, captured in friendly, digitally colored pencil-and-ink-wash illustrations.”—The Horn Book Magazine

Kallie George
 I’m an author, editor, and speaker living in Vancouver, BC, near the sea. When I’m not writing or editing, I’m teaching creative writing workshops.

I have my Masters of Children's Literature from the University of British Columbia.

I love picture books, fairy tales, beautiful art and music, and baking cookies.

Stephanie Graegin is the illustrator of Forget Me Not by Nancy Van Laan; Water in the Park by Emily Jenkins, which received three starred reviews; and Happy Birthday, Bunny! by Liz Garton Scanlon, which received two starred reviews. Graegin earned her BFA from the Maryland Institute for Fine Arts and her MFA in printmaking from the Pratt Institute. You can visit her at  

*A huge thank you to the wonderful people at Random House Children's Books for sending me a copy of the book for review!*
