A Christmas Gift for Rose

Monday, October 21, 2013

Maybe it's because the colder air is finally here, or because I'm trying to figure out when I can squeeze in Christmas shopping this year, but the holidays have been looming in my mind for a couple of weeks now. So is a book lover to do?  Well find a good Christmas book to read of course!

And I want to share what I found with you all.

I was given the chance to read Tricia Goyer's new book A Christmas Gift for Rose, and it was very good. If you like to have a Christmas themed book to read each year, I would suggest this one. It was a quick read, but extremely well put together.

I've got the privilege to share with you another fun book this season.  I'm very excited, as this was a surprise read for me.  I didn't expect it from a self-published writer, but still I enjoyed every second of the book.  At the very end of the post I've included my personal favorite excerpt from the book to give you a sneak peak.  I know there are a million books out there to fill your time with, and you must be selective.  But if you are looking for a fun read that will pull you into a new world, this should be one you add to your list!

And don't miss the giveaway at near the end - I mean who couldn't use a $25 gift card for Amazon this close to the holidays?  I know right!

Harvest and Littles

There is something so magical about Autumn.  The trees are changing, the air smells different. Sure, as adults we know what all these changes mean, but for little kids these changes can be scary on a level. And that is why I feel this season is such a great opportunity to build memories for your children that will carry throughout their lives.

We recently discovered a fun little book, Fletcher and the Falling Leaves by Julia Rawlinson. It was perfect for my little guys. You see, my oldest has noticed how the leaves are changing and falling and for him it was a little unnerving.  He is gentle spirit and was worried over the tree. This book discusses just that sentiment- a favorite tree must be sick since all the leaves are falling off. However that process is important for what is in store for the tree. And Fletcher gets to learn that nature knows how to care for itself, and we get to watch the beauty unfold.
