"The Christmas Box"

by Richard Paul Evans, 1993, 87p, rating=4

A tiny book with a huge message! I don't think I can review this without spoiling it for you so if you plan on reading this book, STOP and move on to your next blog friend.

But it's okay if you take a peek too because the message is important and should be shared anyways.

Just had a thought! I'm not going to tell you the story but I'll impart an excerpt from the book instead and then you can read how the character got to that point: "Somewhere between the angel and Mary's house I had figured it out. The gift of Christmas. It just came to my heart. The first gift of Christmas was love. A parent's love. Pure as the first snows of Christmas. For God so loved this children that he sent his son, that we might someday return to him." (pg 82).

A loving parent reading this book will come to identify the priorities of parenthood. Hence, this book would be an appropriate Mother's Day or Father's Day gift. Of course, also appropriate as a Christmas gift.
