Book Review/Giveaway: Why We Give Gifts at Christmas Time. Ends July 21st
Why We Give Gifts at Christmas Time by Corine Hyman, Ph.D. Illustrated by Julie Bryant
About the Book: Why do we give gifts to each other at Christmas time if it is Jesus’ birthday?” This is a question that everyone has wondered at least once in their life. However, few have been able to come up with an answer. This fall, join Evelyn and her friends as they discover the reason why we give gifts to each other at Christmas time if it is Jesus’ birthday. http://whywegive.weebly.com/
My Review: What is your reason for giving gifts at Christmas? Well, Evelyn decided to find out from her friends why they give gifts at Christmas and she found out that they all had different reasons. Some gave gifts because God gave His only son, and they know one day they will live forever. Some gave gifts because it pleases God, some gave to help others who have less, and some gave to expect nothing in return, while others gave their time. Most importantly, Christ freely gave the gift of salvation when he died for all our sins.
The principle of this book is to teach not only children but adults that gift giving is not only for Christmas but we should learn to give all year round. Learn to give your time to help those in need. Every page has a scripture at the bottom that will encourage the reader about giving.
I recommend this book for classroom teaching and anyone who has children to buy this book. This will help children understand the real meaning of Christmas.
FTC Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review. I was not monetarily compensated for my opinion in any way.
About the Author: Corine Hyman is a clinical psychologist who has been helping families for close to 10 years. Currently, she lives in Baltimore, MD where she has opened her home to children without families by becoming a foster parent. The idea for “Why We Give Gifts at Christmas Time” was placed in her heart many years ago. It is the first of many books that she plans on publishing that uses the Word of God to help children and adults understand the biblical bases for why Christians do what they do.
In an interview, Corine can discuss topics such as tips for celebrating the true meaning of Christmas; simple ways
to teach kids the meaning of popular Christmas traditions; making holiday shopping fun and meaningful for your kids and how to encourage charitable giving in your children during the holidays. http://whywegive.weebly.com/about-us.html

My name is Ella Johnson. I started Mymcbooks to promote reading. As a former teacher, I know that making basic education fundamentals interesting to children can be challenging. Education can be fun, exciting and captivating for children with the right learning tools. So my goal is to “make learning interesting and fun” for the children while they learn, by introducing them to fun books with colorful and captivating illustrations.
In 2009, I start the giveaway program giving away free school supplies at random to 2 winners each year. I also started a monthly free giveaways for books and gifts.
August 2010, I extended the free school supplies from 2 to 5 winners at random on my blog and also give away 20 bags full of school supplies to familes in need at Chick-fil-A in Brandon, Florida during their family nights. And in 2012, I beat my that number and gave away a lot of school supplies to needy families. Hopefully, I can continue to do this each year.
In 2011, I started writing reviews on children’s books then giving these books away free on Mymcbooks Blog. I increase the number of books we giveaway free to help support parent. My goal is to give away as many as I can each year. This is also a great way to introduce parents to new books.
Mymcbooks blog is always looking for other ways to give kids free books. So I started Mymcbooks Birthday Library http://mymcbooksbirthdaylibrary.wordpress.com/
My goal is to giveaway at least 300 books to children each year.
