Description

Emma wants to participate in her community’s annual ‘King’s Day’ celebration that is held every year on January 6th. She loves to see the gifts that are given and hear the stories people tell when they visit. Her mother, however, feels that Emma is too young. When Emma’s grandmother hurts herself, Emma reluctantly agrees to help. In helping her grandmother prepare and serve her King’s Day meal, Emma discovers the meaning behind this special day. ‘King’s Day’ is about celebrating Christ’s birth and the Three Wise Kings who visited the baby Jesus bearing gifts on this holy day. Emma learns that ‘King’s Day’ is not only about exchanging gifts, it’s also about helping family and friends by giving one’s time. Beautifully illustrated by Jay Odjick.

About the Author

Deborah Delaronde-Falk

Deborah L. Delaronde-Falk lives in central Manitoba on a cattle ranch along the western shores of Lake Winnipegosis. She honours her Métis heritage by writing and publishing under her maiden name. Deborah’s nine published stories (with the exception of Friendship Bay and The Rabbit’s Race) are historical in setting and focus around Métis protagonists, with story situations that she hopes will convey the way of life of the Métis people in early Canadian history.

The Stone Gift is contemporary in setting and is her tenth book. Deborah is the first recipient of the ‘Beatrice Mosionier Aboriginal Writer of the Year Award’ in 2015 (Manitoba Book Awards).
