Badger goes from home to home, leaving his woodland friends a gift. When he gets to Owl's house, he finds he has given away everything. Owl, however, has heard the Christmas story and recounts it to Badger.
Nominated as a finalist for Book of the Year by Fore Word Magazine, Badger's Christmas Day reconciles the secular approach to Christmas with the true Christian meaning of Christmas. Each two-page spread contains an envelope that holds a game, a recipe, or other novelty element.
