The Sparkle Box: A Gift with the Power to Change Christmas - written by Jill Hardie
"Sam is so excited about Christmas! He's thinking about what to put on his Christmas list, anticipating holiday parties and puzzling over one very mysterious gift – a sparkly box sitting on the mantel above the fireplace. Written by Jill Hardie and brought to life by the rich illustrations of Christine Kornacki, The Sparkle Box is a heartfelt Christmas story that celebrates the beauty and excitement of the Christmas season, while gently bringing the true meaning of Christmas into focus through a story that features a powerful Christmas tradition. Children and adults of all ages will be captivated by The Sparkle Box and forever changed when they discover the Sparkle Box is a gift that honors Jesus on his birthday. Readers moved to adopt this faith-centered Christmas tradition in their homes can put a Sparkle Box, included with the book, under their own Christmas tree. "
After receiving the book I was excited to read it with my boys. Mr. K is a little young to understand, but Mr. J is at the perfect age. He is 6, and I am really trying to instill giving and kindness into him. He always helps to pick out food for the food bank box when we are at the grocery store - and this is just another way to remind him that kindness needs to be a part of our daily lives.
I am really looking forward to reading out all the "gifts" we have given over the coming weeks. I am going to encourage Mr. J to come up with some ideas on his own as well as what we already do as a family.
