The Silver Packages is about a man that was in the mountains. His car got stuck in the snow and the woman put him in her house until he was better. He needed to thank her, so every Christmas a train comes through the Appalachian Mountains and on the train is the man. He throws silver packages to every kid on the way.

I like this book because it's about giving and thanking. I like the part when the man that was on the train throws silver packages to every kid.

The pictures are very colorful and very bright.

I recommend this book to whoever likes to get presents on Christmas and whoever likes to help people. I also recommend this book to people who don't like to help other people because I think this book might want to make them want to help people.
