Book Order

I finally placed the book order at I spoke of the other night. In addition to the Hakim I mentioned, I also ordered [tag]The Ultimate Gift[/tag]. I’m not quite sure how I missed this book when it came out, but I plan to use it as a read-aloud for the children for school. What brought it to my attention was finding out about the movie that has been made based on it, and the good things that have come from it. I’m planning on taking the oldest three girls to see it, but I want us all to enjoy the book first (as we typically do).

Starring Abigail Breslin of “Little Miss Sunshine”, “The Ultimate Gift” premieres March 9th, the first day of the [tag]Weekend of Giving[/tag]. Already the pre-screenings have had astounding impact on some of the viewers. Teens are getting involved in [tag]Show of Hands[/tag], and millions of dollars have been raised for local charities. I saw a preview and trailers on YouTube, and this is the official site of the movie “The Ultimate Gift” and the grass-roots movement it’s starting to help charities and give to others.

The children see me knitting for various charitable groups and doing other types of things in the community. I am hopeful that reading the book and seeing the movie will help them understand how important it is to give of ourselves to others, and encourage them to find ways to do so. I want them to know that it is the giver who really receives when we do that.
