A Gift with the Power to Change Christmas
I can see The Sparkle Box becoming a yearly traditional read in our home! It fits in perfectly with the way we always celebrate the season--bringing kindness and love to those around us. Around this time of year, my children and I make Shoe Boxes together to send to children throughout the world through Operation Christmas Child. The actual sparkle box is meant to hold slips of paper that record the good deeds we do for others. Published by Ideal Books, The Sparkle Box is different from most of the other Christmas themed children's books I've found. It's really wonderful!
More About The Sparkle BoxSam 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.
