Thirty Day Giving Challenge: Tommy Nelson Giveaway

PhotobucketTommy Nelson has a new children’s book called The King’s Christmas List which teaches children that the greatest gift of all is the gift of giving through the precious story of a little girl named Emma.  Emma was invited to the King’s birthday party, but on the way she learns about giving to those less fortunate.  She wonders what the King will think of her coming without a gift. After meeting the King, Emma discovers she gave the King exactly what he wanted.

The book ends with an interactive featured that encourages families to go online and give their own birthday gifts to the King through notable charities like BloodWater Mission and World Vision.

We will be donating our copy of The King’s Christmas List to a local charity.  You can preview the book and then be sure to enter to win a copy for your family to keep or share. Tommy Nelson has also generously offered a $40 donation to the winning family’s charity of choice from the book’s website.

To Enter:

  • Leave a comment with how you teach your children to give.  If you don’t have children, just leave a comment about giving in general. 🙂

Extra Entries (leave a separate comment for each):

This giveaway will end on Friday (11/5) at 9 PM EST. The winner will be drawn at random, and notified via email.

Disclosure:  I was provided with a copy of The King’s Christmas Gift to review and donate to my local charity.  As always, the opinions in this post are completely my own.

The other bloggers leading the 30-Day Giving Challenge are also giving away a copy of The King’s Christmas Gift:

    We teach many lessons through reading books. The Littest Angel is one of my favorites to help littles ones understand the true meaning of Christmas. During the holidays we participate in giving tree type activities through our church and we also do ther community outreach programs as appropriate.

    I teach my children to give by having them put money in the collection plate at church and talking to them about giving money to others and having them help me fill out donation forms to groups they can relate to like our local zoo and PBS.

    We generally teach about giving by giving ourselves. Our oldest just turned 7 and is beginning to learn about financial giving too.

    I teach them through example. We do lots of things together to give to others. And seeing the joy they can bring to other people is all the reinforcement they need.

    I gave my granddaughter the book “Three Cups”. After reading it, my granddaughter set aside 3 cups for her allowance money. The 1st cup is for charity, the 2nd for saving and the 3rd is for spending. Her cup for charity always gets the largest portion from her. She wants it to go to the needy. All children learn to be charitable from our deeds.

    Previous comment where I said all children will learn from examples set by their parents’ deeds, I forgot to say that we donate to our church and local food pantry.
