Ready is so important to us. Cooper loves hearing about new stories and adventures. Tonight he just said he wished he has a scary book. Well buddy not sure I am ready for you to have them. With the holiday upon us, Christmas books will be making it’s way to the reading list at night. I was thrilled to get the chance to review the new book Sparkle Box by Jill Hardie.
Author Jill Hardie, her husband, and their two children began the tradition of placing a Sparkle Box for Jesus under their Christmas tree approximately seven years ago. The first time they opened His gift, the commercialism of the season melted away and they experienced profound peace and happiness. It’s Jill’s hope that The Sparkle Box book will ignite a new Christmas tradition that helps center Christmas in the true joy of the season.
Wow… what a great and beautiful book. The illustrations are lovely and you actually get the cute little Sparkle Box. The book is so special and shares a great message- how one gift can change everything.
It’s a story of a little boy named Sam who is so excited about Christmas coming and the chance to open this beautiful little “sparkle box” that sits on his family’s mantle. Sam’s parents give to others in a special way, but that just points out that others around us are often in great need. Same starts to open his eyes and heart a bit wider and begins to help those in need.
It’s hard not to cry by the end of book because the meaning of giving for Jesus just warms your heart. I highly recommend rushing out and get this book to ready this holiday season.
One luck reader will get the chance to win this lucky book. US residents only. Ends 12/8/13. Good Luck
