Overview

Readers across the country have been touched and forever changed by the New York Times bestselling book Christmas Jars. Now, children can feel the spirit of the Christmas Jar in this full- color illustrated children's picture book. Penny's Christmas Jar Miracle is an original story based on the Christmas Jars tradition that has touched hundreds of thousands of lives. Penny Paisley and her family have a special Christmas tradition. All year long they collect their loose change and drop it in a glass jar on the kitchen counter. Then, each December, Penny and her family make their most exciting decision of the year: Who will receive the Paisley Family Christmas Jar? This year, Penny gets to choose what to do with the jar, and she has something special in mind. "Instead of just giving our jar to only one person or one family, what if we gave it to the entire neighborhood?" said Penny. "We could use the Christmas jar money to have the biggest and best party anyone has ever been to. No one will ever forget it!" To earn money for the Christmas Jar, Penny sets up a hot chocolate stand in front of her house. Mr. Charlie, the kind elderly man across the street, is her best customer. He even helps her make invitations for the party. But when Mr. Charlie becomes ill, Penny sets a new plan in motion and gets the whole neighborhood involved. Yes, this will be a Christmas and a party that no one will ever forget! Children will not only learn about compassion and service but, most important, they'll see that no matter what your age, you can make a difference in the life of someone else.

I am a huge fan of Jason Wright's books, and I was so excited that he was coming out with a childrens book. This book delivered just what I would have expected from him, it was excellent. My five year old is still showing people the book, he says its CHRISTMAS JARS FOR KIDS! Our whole family loved this book, and I am sure it is one that will be read time and again. What an important message that kids can be invoolved and help others in need!

We purchased this book to be used at our neighborhood Christmas party. Santa gathered the children (ages 2 - 16) around and read about Penny. The story is heartwarming and teaches children that they can do good for others who are in need. There was discussion after the reading and the children were excited to tell what they got out of this book.
