"Good King Wenceslas looked out
on the Feast of Stephen,
when the snow lay round about,
deep and crisp and even.
Brightly shone the moon that night,
though the frost was cruel,
when a poor man came in sight,
gathering winter fuel."
This story, based on actual events that occurred in the tenth century, tells of a kind-hearted king and his page who set out to help a poor man on a cold winter's night and experience a miracle along the way. Tim's Ladwig's energetic paintings bring new life to the familiar words and remind readers of all ages that helping others is a blessing.About the Author:
John M. Neale (1818-1866), an Anglican priest, wrote the words to "Good King Wenceslas" in 1853 to inspire children to be generous on Saint Stephen's Day (December 26).
