The Gift of Nothing Patrick McDonnell
New York: Little, Brown and Company, 2005.
In this season of more and more to do, I read this book often. You can probably find it in your local library and return it when you have enjoyed it.
Here’s the story-Mooch wants to give his friend, Earl, a gift. Earl has everything he needs, and Mooch doesn’t know what to give him. He decides to give him nothing but cannot find nothing anywhere he goes. Join Mooch in his search for the perfect gift.
I hope this book reminds you how much you have. I hope this book encourages you to find time to spend with someone you love. You might even spend some time doing nothing together.
And a great resource for linking children’s books with Scripture is Storypath from Union Presbyterian Seminary. Their post on The Gift of Nothing will make you want to read it again.
