Review and Giveaway :: The Sparkle Box Children's Book

I love the idea of a sparkle box for Christmas. Placing a box under the tree to capture notes of how you shared the spirit of Christmas with unselfish giving, sharing, kindness and volunteering during the holiday season. I say why not take it one step further and use your sparkle box the entire year. What a great blessing it would be to review a years worth of giving in honor of Jesus Christ and a great lesson for your children to see what one family can do given 365 days to make a difference. What a great tradition to start right now!!!
The Sparkle Box - A Gift with the Power to Change Christmas with a sparkle box included!
Written by Jill Hardie
Illustrated by Christine Kornacki
Available now!
Author Bio
Author Jill Hardie and her family began placing a gift for Jesus under their Christmas tree as a way of bringing more meaning to the holiday.  The first time they opened His gift, the commercialism of the season melted away and they felt a profound joy and peace.  Jill hopes that The Sparkle Box will spark a new Christmas tradition, bringing light into thousands of lives.  
Illustrator Bio
At a very early age, Christine Kornacki developed a love for painting and bringing stories to life.  After receiving a BFA in illustration from the University of Hartford, her dreams of illustrating children's books began to take shape.  She spends her days painting in her studio, which adjoins a charming cafe in New Haven, Connecticut.
