This is a large hardcover book with beautiful paintings of family life. Follow Sam and his parents as they get ready for Christmas. There is a sparkle box on the mantle in the living room. Sam wonders about it. As the days lead up to Christmas, the family donates to the less fortunate. Each of these sacrificial deeds is written on a piece of paper and placed in the sparkle box. These are the Christmas gifts for Jesus. The sparkle is a symbol of the light of the world.
This sweet story will delight children and encourage them to want their own sparkle box, which comes with the book! This may very well help start an amazing tradition in many homes!
