A Christmas Dream, and How it Came True
Ten-year-old Effie lives the life most children dream of—with every day filled with delicious treats and wonderful toys. One night she experiences a dream that will forever change the meaning of Christmas for her. In it, she meets a group of under privileged children and she is inspired to create a Christmas they will never forget.

Imagining all that her equine friend, Rosa, might have to say, young Belinda is shocked to hear the sad story of Rosa's life and her fears of what the future might hold.
