Hope’s Broken Snow Globe

A wish to see.

Hope finished her Thanksgiving celebrations and waited for Christmas. When dad got all the Christmas decorations, she hoped to have mom over for Christmas. Hope felt sad seeing the snow globe. She had broken it last Christmas. She broke it the day when mom and dad had a big fight and dad moved out of the house. Mom and dad stopped living together afterward. Hope believed it happened because she broke the snow globe. She was determined to fix it. She went to a hardware store, but the old man there asked her to go to the superstore. But Hope wanted to repair her old one instead of buying a new one. But things turned worse when Hope dropped the globe again while in a hurry to return home. What happened to Hope’s Christmas?

We picked this book for its theme. The storyline talks about a young girl’s simple wish after her parents go through a divorce recently. In addition, the classically styled illustrations are calming for a heavy subject.

Hope's Broken Snow Globe by Kelly Chang Rickert is a brilliantly illustrated book about a child's expectation for Christmas from her just separated parents.
