Our review:

No gift for Peter is a story about patience.
It's the eve of christmas day and Peter wants to open his gift. His parent's remind him to wait, and to go to bed and wait till morning.
He doesn't wait till morning, and goes to the tree after everyone is asleep and thinks it be harmless to just take a peek.
Just then Santa arrives, and explains that since Peter was impatient, he wouldn't be getting his gift on the top of his list, and instead he will be getting the gift of learning patience.
This is difficult for Peter, he doesn't want to wait, he gets frustrated at traffic lights, friends and his family members as he waits...
Eventually being patient becomes easier, and easier and the year passes. 
For being so patient his family rewards his efforts on the eve before christmas with a delicious chocolate cake, and he's rewarded with another visit from Santa.

This is a short chapter story. Perhaps more appropriate for a child 7+. My 4 year old listened, but it was a bit too long with her. We did read it, we did enjoy it. Thank you to Sabinah for an opportunity to read and review it.

Merry Christmas!
