The Sparkle Box & Giveaway

I am so excited to kick off our Holiday Gift Guide 2012 today and share so many awesome gift ideas for everyone on your list this year!! The rest of this week and next week we will be focusing on Gift Ideas for Children!

I am so happy to start of the gift guide with a great book that reminds children the true meaning of Christmas among all the other craziness that happens over the holiday season!

The upcoming holiday season can often be clouded by the glare of commercialism, and it’s easy for families to get caught up in the tinsel, parties, gifts and lights and forget there is a deeper reason to celebrate Christmas. Author, Jill Hardie saw this happening with her own family, and she found a special way to show her children the joy of giving to others and to teach them that giving is itself a gift!

The result is the book, "The Sparkle Box: A Gift with the Power to Change Christmas" and it can help families start a wonderful new tradition this Christmas season of giving to others. Written by Jill Hardie, and beautifully illustrated by Christine Kornacki, each book even comes with a beautiful sparkle box, so families can begin their own tradition this Christmas season.

Like most young children, Sam is so excited about Christmas. He’s busy thinking about his Christmas list, anticipating holiday parties and puzzling over one very mysterious gift—a sparkly box sitting on the mantel above the fireplace. Throughout the Christmas season, Sam and his family participate in various acts of kindness to others. On Christmas morning, Sam finally gets to open the Sparkle Box, where he finds slips of paper recording the family’s good deeds during the holiday season. This uplifting story will inspire readers to adopt a new tradition in their homes, and as mentioned above, each book comes with a beautiful Sparkle Box so families can begin this tradition right away.
