The Sparkle Box Book


I’m so excited to share with you The Sparkle Box book.

In “The Sparkle Box”, Sam is very excited to Christmas to come this year, when a mystery box shows up on top of the mantel.  It sparkles and has a bow on top, what could be inside?  The only clues his parents will give him is that it’s a very special box, they need to open it together, and they must fill it before they can open it.  He doesn’t see his parents put anything in the box but they tell him they are filling the box almost everyday.   Mean while Sam and his family give to people in need and he starts to see how fortunate he really is.  On Christmas morning he gets to open the box with his family and shed light on the true meaning of Christmas.
This is a beautifully written story that all of my kiddos loved.  It even comes with it’s own sparkle box so you can fill it and open it with your family Christmas morning.  I love things that will help my kiddos (and me) remember the true importance of the Season of giving.
Author Bio
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.  

Illustrator Bio
At a very early age, Christine Kornacki developed a love for painting and bringing stories to life.  After receiving a BFA in illustration from the University of Hartford, her dreams of illustrating children’s books began to take shape.  She spends her days painting in her studio, which adjoins a charming cafe in New Haven, Connecticut.

I am extremely excited that I get to give one of these wonderful books away to one reader.  I’m sure you’ll love it as much as I and my family did.

    Awww,…that sounds like a great book. I have to admit I am struggling for a Christmas book to pick as a favourite. I guess I don’t read a lot of Christmas books (don’t have kids which is my partial excuse),….okay, how about The Grinch Who Stole Christmas. :)

    A favorite children’s book for me is “Mortimer’s Christmas Manger”. A darling story! We love “Jotham’s Journey: A Storybook for Advent” too. Thank you for an opportunity to win “The Sparkle Box”.

    My favorite Christmas story book is the Polar Express. However, my favorite TRUE story of Christmas is in my Bible.
