On The First Day of Christmas...

...The Mrs. Gave to Me...

 

I really like the idea of reading a great story that shares the true spirit of Christmas with my family.  If you think you would enjoy something like that to, this is the giveaway for you to enter. 

Cole Family Christmas is a book based off a true story. It's a story that was shared with the author (Jennifer) by her Grandmother-in-law (Hazel). Jennifer thought it was such a great story and wanted to preserve it and share the story with everyone. The entire family pitched in and helped with everything from research to design and now this beautiful story is available for all to share.

From the press release:

Hazel was one of nine Cole children raised in the small mining community of Benham, Kentucky, in the Appalachian Mountains. The tale, based on a true story, follows a special Christmas when the Cole children are allowed to ask Santa for gifts from the Sears catalogue wish book. An unlikely snowstorm, however, sets the stage for a holiday in which gifts are given and received that no one could have predicted. The joyful and unexpected Christmas morning that results has lived on as family lore, and is preserved in Cole Family Christmas.

You will love sharing this book with your family!

If you'd like to learn more you can go to the Cole Family website. Also, the famous goat, Hilda, from the book is the mascot for ReadAloud.org. Have fun checking those out!

Now, to enter for this GREAT family book, just see the official rules for the contest and then leave a comment below.
