Wait! What about the name - "Holly & Ivy"?

 I love literature that tells a compelling story.

 I love children’s literature that resonates with readers of all ages.

And I love ‘Holly & Ivy’, a story about wishing…. and dreams coming true.

Ivy, an orphan, wishes for a real home and sets out in search of the grandmother she’s sure she can find. Holly, a Christmas doll, wishes for a child to bring her to life. And Mr and Mrs. Jones wish more than anything for a child to share their holiday.

 Filled with the warm glow of Christmas spirit, Holly & Ivy, a children's book, is a beautiful story about how all of the characters find one another and become family.

Holly and Ivy is one of my favourite children’s stories and resonates with me on a personal level. I gave a copy of Holly & Ivy to my best friend, the day she and her husband met their adopted daughter.  And just like Ivy, I was raised by a grandmother. 

Loving families are creations of what we make them to be.

Much love from my family to yours,

Donna
