One Christmas Eve, Nicholas and his Abuelo gaze out at a young apple tree, standing in the snow. After Nicholas sees a bird tumble off a branch, he rushes outside and determinedly makes his way through the winter storm to rescue it.

Abuelo helps him care for the red cardinal, telling his grandson of his own grandfather's saying: 'When you do a good thing, good will come back to you.' The bird recovers and on Christmas Day, Nicholas releases it outside. All winter, he watches the apple tree and is sorry that the cardinal does not return ... but years later, people come from far and near every Christmas Eve to see something special in that apple tree. Can you guess what it is?

Read Christmas Eve Blizzard to find out. At the back of this sweet holiday book are bird-related crafts, as well as helpful information on Making a Bird-Happy Backyard Habitat and on What To Do If You Find An Injured or An Orphaned Baby Bird.
