About The Sparkle Box
Here is the touching story of a young boy who unknowingly participates in a powerful new Christmas tradition: honoring Jesus on His birthday by giving to others.
Sam is so excited about Christmas! He’s thinking about his Christmas list, looking forward to holiday parties, and puzzling over one very mysterious gift: a sparkly box sitting on the mantel. In the midst of the festivities, Sam and his family participate in various acts of kindness to others. On Christmas morning, when Sam finally opens the Sparkle Box, he finds only slips of paper that record the family’s good deeds. Sam’s mom explains that the things that they’ve been doing are, in fact, a gift for Jesus, for Jesus said that whatever we do for those in need, we do for Him.
About the Author of The Sparkle Box
Author Jill Hardie and her family began placing a gift for Jesus under their Christmas tree as a way of bringing more meaning to the holiday. The first time they opened His gift, the commercialism of the season melted away and they felt a profound joy and peace. Jill hopes that The Sparkle Box will spark a new Christmas tradition, bringing light into thousands of lives.
My Review of The Sparkle Box
I read this book to my Princess this week and we both loved it. The book talks about happy tears and by the end of this book I too had happy tears in my eyes. This is exactly the kind of Christmas book that I want my daughter to enjoy. This is the true meaning of Christmas that I want to teach her. She is exited about presents and making cookies, but those are just the superficial things. Doing things for others is such a great way to represent Christ. My husband and I are looking into ways locally that we can volunteer with her this holiday season.
I HIGHLY recommend The Sparkle Box for the children in your life. You won’t be dissappointed. This book is quality, the illustrations are exceptional and the message – spot on! Buy it today.
