Try it Thursday & Review {Giveaway: The Sparkle Box}

Thanks for checking out
"Try it Thursday & Review."

I am super excited about today's review.
I know I've talked about Christmas a lot but who can resist. 
It is probably my favorite holiday.

Today, I would love to tell you about a book called,
The Sparkle Box
A Gift with the Power to Change Christmas
Written by Jill Hardie
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.  

In my opinion

I enjoyed reading The Sparkle Box. It was a beautifully written story that reminded me about the true meaning of Christmas. The illustrations were detailed and beautifully developed. The best part about this book was that a sparkle box was included. So, now I can put a Sparkle Box under my Christmas tree and start a new tradition in my family. This was the perfect book to bring the spirit of Christmas into your home. I definitely recommend The Sparkle Box to anyone who loves Christmas and wants a new tradition. Loved, loved, loved!!!
