The Family Under the Bridge by Natalie Savage

The book I recently just finished was The Family Under the Bridge by Natalie Savage Carlson. When a hobo named Armand is just minding his own business out in the streets of Paris a struggling family comes begging for help. It includes a single desperate mother, a loyal boy, and two cute little girls. At first Armand is confused and doesn’t know what to do. He tries to also ignore their troubles. Before Armand knows it he finds himself caring very much for this family that may have more serious problems than he’s had or has ever had. Being kind he offers the family to sharing is awkward home under the bridge with them. Into worst matters the three children have missed having a comfortable, cozy home of their own. The worst part it was right before the holidays. Armand always thought what one man like him could do to help this poor, kind family for the holidays?!?
