Synopsis

It's Christmas Eve at the Hideaway Home, but 95-year-old Miss Wire is the only resident who wants to celebrate. The other old folks think that Christmas is just for children. So Miss Wire writes a letter to Santa Claus, who enlists the help of the Christmas Mice to deliver children's unwanted toys to Miss Wire and her elderly friends, who discover that Christmas fun is not just for the young. "The I Am Reading" series provides just the right balance of challenge and support for newly independent readers. Large, easy-to-read type, satisfying stories by top writers and cheerful full-colour pictures help children make the transition from picture books to chapter books. Each book includes a bookmark flap, tips for beginner readers and either short, numbered chapters or two short stories.
