The Sparkle Box by Jill Hardie

This is a great Christmas story for kids and adults. This is a perfect way to give gifts to Jesus. I hope this makes many people want to make Sparkle boxes. This was well written and illustrated. This should become a Christmas classic. It made me cry twice so far. I received this book from Worthy publishing for a fair and honest opinion.  Here is the touching story of a young boy who unknowingly participates in a powerful new Christmas tradition: honouring 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.
