9781934031254: The Scallop Christmas

Times were tough in the small New England fishing village where Marcie lived. No one had any money, and work was hard to find. So the villagers rejoiced one glorious fall when an unexpected bounty of scallops filled their little bay. For young Marcie, a week of harvesting scallops also brought an unexpected adventure and a lesson about love that she would never forget. The Scallop Christmas, illustrated by rising star Astrid Sheckels, was the winner of the 2009 Maine Lupine Honor Award, given annually to a picture book of outstanding merit. (2017-08-01)

About the Author:

Author Jane Freeberg lives on Georgetown Island in Midcoast Maine and has lived in the state for thirty years. The Scallop Christmas is based on a true story told to her by her friend Marcia, who lived most of the story. She states, "It rattled around in my brain for thirty-five years, and when it came to mind, I'd think, 'That's a great story. I ought to write it down. I'm so glad I did."

Review:

Sheckels adds color, vitality, a crispness and life to all 32 pages of her new book. --The Greenfield (MA) Recorder

"Once in a great while something different comes along that is truly absorbing and moving and tells this tale of the Christmas spirit in words and illustrations in a way that is both very familiar and very new. Such a book is The Scallop Christmas, by Jane Freeberg and Astrid Sheckels ... young readers will not only get a deep enjoyment from the happy ending of the tale, in the process they will have learned something about scallops, courage under pressure and the rewards of patience." --Nan Lincoln, The Bar Harbor (ME) Times

"This nostalgic tale of a very special gift - not the special Christmas present itself but the love it symbolizes - is the first children's book by Jane Freeberg. Set in a Maine coastal village, the story of a family working together during the Depression provides a glimpse into the past with its description of scallop harvesting, as well as a good lesson about what really matters. Astrid Sheckel's watercolors create a strong sense of time and place." --Elizabeth Kennedy, About.com Children's Books, Best Children's Books of 2009
