I first read this book over Christmas break a few years back after receiving it as a gift from one of my middle school students. My daughter was nine at the time, and we turned off the television for two evenings and read this book instead..
After completion, you can't help but be inspired to start your own Christmas Jar! Our family has been following the Christmas Jar spirit ever since.
If you are looking for a light-hearted gift to give your child that could lead to deeper emotional thinking and generosity, I strongly suggest you empty the pickle jar in your fridge, give it a bow, and wrap it in a box with this book!
Age Recommendation: Whole Family Read Aloud or Ages 9 and up!
