A Season of Gifts is today’s featured book of the day.

Grandma Dowdel is back and she’s ready to help out the new family that has just moved next door…even if they believe or want the help of their older and much wiser neighbor.

It’s Christmas season in 1958 and Mrs. Dowdel is ready to give some special gifts to the her new neighbors: a young minister and his wife. All of them need her help, including their children. Bob, the boy, isn’t brave enough to defend himself against the school bullies. Phyllis, the oldest, is in love with Elvis Presley and Ruth Ann, the youngest, needs a role moder.

Mrs. Dowdel will find a way into their hearts and make them realize just how great a neighbor she is.
