McIntyre’s Books

A special storytime is in the works as Liza Howell comes to storytime with her first book, The Christmas Bird.

With delightful full-page illustrations and a heart-warming story that speaks to young and old alike, The Christmas Bird showcases the power of God’s love, the strength of family, and the triumph of faith.

One day, determined to find the perfect Christmas tree, Maggie’s father and brothers unknowingly choose her favorite. The Christmas Bird, tucked away inside his hidden nest, is carried from the forest and into the family’s cozy cabin, where he watches quietly as his tree is adorned with ornaments and garlands as part of the family’s Christmas tradition. There, on this special Christmas Eve, the Christmas Bird witnesses the family love and care for Maggie and he learns the true meaning of Christmas and the joy that it brings.

Elizabeth K. Howell lives in a snowy Utah town where she and her husband are raising their four wonderful kids. The Christmas Bird is her first children’s book, fulfilling a promise to her late father, who encouraged her writing. Liza is a Christian who sees God’s goodness and faithfulness in His creation and in all creatures great and small. It’s her desire that The Christmas Bird will warm hearts and bring the gift of hope to all who read it.
