The Sparkle Egg review and giveaway 


About the book:

The Sparkle Egg 
Easter is coming, and Sam loves Easter! But this year, he is upset about a lie he told his parents. Even though he apologized and they
forgave him, Sam can’t shake the feeling that he is a bad kid for what he did. Meanwhile, his parents help him make a special Easter craft
called a Sparkle Egg. His mom tells him to write anything he feels sorry about or ashamed of on a piece of paper and put it inside his
Sparkle Egg.

On Easter morning, when he opens his Sparkle Egg expecting a surprise, Sam finds that it is empty! His parents explain that because
Jesus died and rose again, we are forgiven. Like the tomb that first Easter Day, Sam's egg is empty—and Sam’s wrong doing is
completely forgiven. Once he accepts this forgiveness fully, Sam realizes a truth: we can sparkle and shine with God’s light when we
let God’s gift of grace into our hearts. This touching story will strike a deep chord with readers of all ages, and the Sparkle Egg tradition will help readers and their
families grasp the totality of God’s perfect grace.

My review:
My kids LOVE it!  This year we are going to start a Sparkle egg tradition in my home.  The message delivered was heartfelt and I was proud to give my kiddos this book.  The story is well written and the illustrations are absolutely beautiful!  Each year I think the true meaning of the holidays gets lost behind gifts.  The Sparkle Egg I really do think helped my 3 and 6 year old get a better concept on why we really celebrate Easter.  Well maybe not my 3 year old, but Brandon Jr asked a lot of questions and really seemed to enjoy it.
