Sam spies a sparkly box on the mantle and asks his mother about it. She tells him it is a special gift they will open later, but they must first fill it up. Each day, Sam and his mom go through the preparations for Christmas including taking items to the homeless shelter and performing random acts of kindness. Over the holiday season, Sam discovers how much he can be grateful for. Later, as they open the sparkle box, he understands the true meaning of Christmas.
“The Sparkle Box” by Jill Hardie (and illustrated by Christina Kornacki) is a wonderful illustration of what Christmas is really all about. The book comes with a sparkle box you can use to teach your children about what it means to be givers at Christmas and why Jesus was born. A tradition of giving is one of the best gifts we can give to our children and this is a great way to get a child excited to give to others.
