The Sparkle Box, by Jill Hardie, is a book to remind us of the true meaning of Christmas. It gathers the family together for a meaningful way of sharing blessings, loving one another, and reflecting on the gifts we all have to share.
Sam is so excited about Christmas! He's thinking about his Christmas list, looking forward to holiday parties, and puzzling over one very mysterious gift: a sparkly box sitting on the mantel. In the midst of the festivities, Sam and his family participate in various acts of kindness to others. On Christmas morning, when Sam finally opens the Sparkle Box, he finds only slips of paper that record the family's good deeds. Sam's mom explains that the things that they've been doing are, in fact, a gift for Jesus, for Jesus said that whatever we do for those in need, we do for Him.
Markers, stickers, cuts of paper, and love went into their project! They shared ideas of how they could give and bless this season and fill their Sparkle Box with lots of treasures for Jesus' birthday.
What will you do this season to add sparkle to the world? How can your family be a blessing to someone?
