When Christian was just a little feller* he fell in love with Spot and Steve and the gentle and sweet adventures they would encounter in Eric Hill's books.
To this day, I always think of Christian when I see these books at a bookstore or in a toddler's chubby little hand.
Every monkey we would encounter, whether it was a stuffed monkey, monkey stickers, monkeys at the zoo, would automatically be named "Steve" because of Christian's love for Steve the Monkey and others in these sweet stories.
Imagine my bursting and tender heart when I saw what Christian sent to us as part of our Christmas gifts from him. Can you believe this darling elder?
