The Gift of the Magi by O. The story is also free online click on text below and is quite short so it lends itself well to a picture book format although it's of more interest to adults, I think. Classical Academic Press have a free audio of this story you may download. The magi, as you know, were wise men - wonderfully wise men - who brought gifts to the Babe in the manger. They invented the art of giving Christmas presents. Being wise, their gifts were no doubt wise ones, possibly bearing the privilege of exchange in case of duplication. And here I have lamely related to you the uneventful chronicle of two foolish children in a flat who most unwisely sacrificed for each other the greatest treasures of their house.
But in a last word to the wise of these days let it be said that of all who give gifts these two were the wisest. Of all who give and receive gifts, such as they are wisest. Everywhere they are wisest. They are the magi. In "The Story of the Other Wise Man," well-meaning Artaban prepares to join three fellow Magi in their journey to Judaea for the birth of a holy prince.
But a needy stranger and a twist of fate will change his destiny. These timeless classics will capture the hearts of every family that loves Christmas readings. His Christmas stories have been read and savored for over years.
