A Christmas tale to enchant the child in all of us (but especially meant for children ages 4-6) Spider's Gift tells the story of how everyone has something valuable to offer the baby Jesus, as long as it's offered with love.

Author and zoologist Geraldine Ann Marshall spins this newest addition to the PaulineKids Tales and Legends series that includes a story, a prayer, and pages of facts and folklore about spiders.
