|I received a complimentary copy of The Sparkle Box for the purpose of this review.|
I am so happy to be sharing with you today a book that is beautifully written and truly puts the celebration of generosity and service back at the forefront of the holiday season. The Sparkle Box, by Jill Hardie, is a sweet story about a family getting ready for Christmas, and the excitement that surrounds the holiday. Sam, the young boy in the family, is hoping he will receive the red train he has had his eye on when he opens his presents Christmas morning. Before the presents are placed under the tree though, he notices a glittery box on the mantle which has him anxiously asking his parents about the contents.
Reading "The Sparkle Box" gave us the perfect opportunity to discuss what Christmas is really about and explain the traditions we want to foster in our little family. The book comes with a fold out sparkle box, just like the one pictured, so that you can find ways to live out the message of the story in your family. We have already started putting together a list of things we'd like to do to participate in our own acts of service this Winter.
Jill Hardie and her family began the tradition of the sparkle box several years ago, and have experienced profound peace and joy as a result. Jill wrote The Sparkle Box hoping that other families would be inspired to adopt this tradition and recenter Christmas in the true joy of the season.
