The Paperbag Christmas- Review

A few weeks ago someone.. (I am sorry I can't remember who) was hosting a give away for The Paper bag Christmas by Kevin Alan Milne on their blog. I entered the giveaway because I love to read and there is usually nothing better than a great holiday story.. Well, I didn't win the give away : ( A few weeks later I received an email asking if I would be interested in reading the book.. They would send the book to me and all I would have to do is a review on my blog. First of all, I had a couple read it. I had never had anything like this happen to me.. I wanted to make sure it was legit. I am a dork, I know.. Well I decided to respond and in just a few days I received the book on my door step..

I quickly opened it up and finished the book in one sitting. I absolutely loved it.

Milne’s touching novel reminds readers of caring, friendship and sacrifice. How often do we get carried away by the gifts and hustle of Christmas activities and forget what Christmas is really all about? Read Paper Bag Christmas and rediscover one of the true meanings of Christmas.

I totally recommend this book to everyone who loves to read a good book that will make them laugh and cry. A book that makes you think.. and put your priorities straight.

You can purchase the book here: The Paper bag Christmas

Wow, that was neat... Sounds great, I will have to check it out. Sounds like it might make a great little gift too.

Speaking of gifts. I was wondering what types of gifts preK teachers like to get. This is our first time shopping for a preschool teacher and I was not sure. I was also wondering if you guys like to recieve pictures of the kids??? I thought I overheard our saying they hoped they got some when they were handing out our packets.. Any help would be greatly appreciated on this...
