It's almost Christmas and Sam is so excited for the parties and presents---but there's one mysterious gift, a sparkly box sitting on the mantel--- that leaves him puzzled. In the midst of the festivities, Sam and his family participate in various acts of kindness for others. On Christmas morning when Sam opens the Sparkle Box, he finds slips of paper that record the family's good deeds. Sam's parents explain that these kind acts are a gift for Jesus---for Jesus said that whatever we do for the least of these, we do for Him. Recommended for ages 4+.
The moving story of an uncommon gift and how giving to others shows a little boy the true meaning of Christmas.
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.
