The Gift of the Magi

img_8264The story was initially published in The New York Sunday World under the title, “Gifts of the Magi” on December 10, 1905.   It was first published in book form in the O. Henry Anthology The Four Million in April 1906.

We thought we would celebrate its 111th anniversary by asking Gil to read The Gift of the Magi for our Fireflies GLOW read-aloud collection.

If you are interested in having a copy of this short story in reading it to your children or perhaps purchasing it for your home library, we recommend the published version illustrated by P.J. Lynch.
