Now I'll let Beckie introduce herself and tell about a special children's book.

"I am a 50-something crazy book lady who is serious about getting people to read good books. I have 3 college aged children, a wonderful husband and a menagerie of pets thanks to my husband's career as a veterinarian. I have been blogging for 4 years and have been very blessed by the many friends I have met through my blog."
My review -- The Sparkle Box by Jill Hardie, illustrated by Christine Kornacki. A wonderful message, beautifully told and illustrated, The Sparkle Box is targeted for children 4 and up. It tells the story of Sam and his family at Christmas. Amidst the holiday decorations and presents, Sam spies a glittery box nestled on the mantle. His parents explain that the Sparkle Box is a special gift that they will fill throughout the season and open when it is filled. Through the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season, Sam sees glimpses of people in need and the way his family joins in giving.
The Sparkle Box is the perfect addition to your family’s Christmas reading. The illustrations are beautiful, the story told in a simple and clear manner and the message of giving is told practically for children to understand. I love that the book includes a Sparkle Box so that families can join in the tradition of giving in the name of Jesus. Great for your children or that special child in your life.
