An illustrated treasury of stories for kids, including two Christmas tales, from the beloved Pulitzer and Nobel Prize–winning author of The Good Earth. This collection of more than twenty stories brings readers back to the timeless fascinations of childhood—thunderstorms and star-filled skies, rabbits and rosebushes—and journeys into the larger world we discover as we grow older, learning about foreign languages and different cultures, or responsibilities like caring for an elderly grandparent. It also includes two Christmas classics, as well as a humorous tale of how cats and dogs came to dislike each other. Divided into sections for both little children and bigger ones, A Gift for the Children is a joy in any season, whether you’re reading out loud at bedtime or encouraging kids to read on their own. From the New York Times–bestselling author famed for her travels and adventures, particularly in China, it’s a delightful, heartwarming, and enriching volume of short fiction.

New York Times bestselling author Mary Higgins Clark, America's Queen of Suspense, launched her career with the publication of Where Are the Children?, her debut suspense thriller about a woman whose past holds a terrible secret. Nancy Harmon had been found guilty in a California court of murdering her two young children, but she was released from prison on a legal technicality. Deciding to make a fresh start, to change her identity, she left San Francisco and sought tranquillity on Cape Cod. Seven years later, Nancy is remarried and has two small children: five-year-old Michael and three-year-old Missy. Finally she feels that she has been able to reclaim all that she had lost. Then the nightmare begins again. One day a local Cape Cod paper runs an article about a famous California murder trial involving a mother accused of killing her two children. Along with the article is a photo of Nancy. On that same morning, Michael and Missy disappear. They had been playing in the yard, but when she looked for them, they were gone...all that remained was Missy's red mitten. While Nancy becomes the prime suspect in the disappearance of her children, no one in the small Cape Cod town is aware of a stranger in their midst -- someone whose plans for revenge have been festering for seven long years.

The ambition depends on all children's services working together at the local level and the final chapter looks at the systems which are needed for this to happen
