Sam is so excited about Christmas! He’s thinking about his Christmas list and puzzling over a mysterious gift—a sparkly box sitting on the mantel. As Sam and his family participate in holiday activities, they bless others with gifts from the heart: they give mittens to a homeless man, support a clean water charity, and donate blankets. When Sam finally opens the Sparkle Box on Christmas morning, he finds slips of paper that say things like “mittens for those in need.” His smiling parents explain that the papers in the box represent the family’s gifts to Jesus that year. Now in paperback, this heartfelt story will inspire readers to adopt this faith-centered tradition in their own homes, using the included Sparkle Box.

The year the hardback edition of The Sparkle Box was published it won the Christian Children's Book award. This year the paperback edition was published. I was pleased to see that it is the same high quality, beautiful book~ with the cheerful shiny cover and sparkly box on the front cover and large- sized shiny pages. The story and the illustrations are wonderful. A full sized sparkle box is included with this edition as well. Since we started the Sparkle Box tradition in our family, it has added so much joy~ by focusing on the true meaning of Christmas!
