Giveaway: The Sparkle Box Book – 2 Winners!

November 2, 2012

UPDATE: This giveaway has ended. Winners will be announced soon!

The holidays are approaching and it’s the time of year when we focus on the spirit of giving to others. Nothing touches my heart more than when I see a complete stranger giving freely to someone else in need. It’s also a great time of year to teach kids that it’s not about the gifts under the tree but the gifts that we give to those who need it most.

I was given a review copy of The Sparkle Box and I found it to be a great heart-warming and lesson-filled story. It’s starts off with a little boy noticing a sparkle box on the mantel and asking his mother what it was for. She explains that it’s a gift but it’s not quite ready to give, as it needs to be filled. The story continues with the family doing various things to help others. Each time, without the little boy knowing it, the mother writes the good deed on a piece of paper and puts it in the Sparkle Box. On Christmas morning, the boy opens the box to finds the papers and the family reads them together. The mother then explains how the Sparkle Box is their gift for Jesus on his birthday–that gifts we do for others are ones we do for Him.

It’s an incredibly beautiful story and each book comes with its own Sparkle Box in the back that can be assembled and used. This book and sparkle box might be a great new tradition that you could start with your family each year.

Propeller has been kind to offer me a copy of The Sparkle Box to the two winners that win this giveaway. Each winner will receive the story that contains a sparkle box that they can use with their own family.
