It has been snowing all day, and now it is Christmas Eve. But Jonathan James is sick in bed, with a most uncomfortable stuffed-up head. Just as he is closing his sleepy eyes, a little dwarf comes sliding down his bedroom curtain and invites him to the Inside Land, where he meets Father Christmas, who has a message for Jonathan. Father Christmas also makes a promise to Squirrel, Rabbit, Bird, and Mouse, who cannot find any food in the snowy woods.

When Jonathan wakes up on Christmas morning he is all better, and he finds a shiny new sled at the foot of his bed. But he thinks there is something that he should do before he goes out to play in the snow.

He thought and he thought. Was it back by the trees?
Last night the stars sang. Or was it a breeze?
Jonathan remembers the hungry animals out in the snow and fills his new sled with nuts, seeds, carrots, and all sorts of good things for them to eat. Even the chickens have grain to spare.

This enchanting holiday story is a special bedtime tale to read to young children during the Christmas season.
