"This is a lovely book about friendship between two very different people from opposite cultures. It is also a tale about hope and the magic of Christmas. Children will delight in the colorful illustrations as they learn about the Oregon Trail and the pioneers, their hardships and dreams of a better life. At the end of the book there's a section with activities and information about the pilgrims, as well as a game and a map. The Christmas Angel will make a lovely Christmas gift to any child as well as an excellent tool for teachers to teach this era of American history."--Mayra Calvani, Midwest Book Review
