Merry Christmas from sunny Arizona, Pardners!
When I was growing up, one of the Christmas traditions that my siblings and I enjoyed was having stockings. We didn't always have a fireplace on which to hang them, but they were fun anyway. They were filled with inexpensive gifts--candy, small toys and games, flashlights, and other items that delighted us. The tradition is still kept in homes across the country.
If your home is one of those that follows the Christmas stocking tradition, or if you're thinking about joining those who do, consider making one or more of your child's stocking stuffers a book. Thousands of parents have purchased these entertaining,educational books for their children. Many have read and enjoyed the books with their children. Here's what some of them said.
"About a month ago I ordered four of the Arty books for Nathan. He was already in the middle of another book so he didn't start right away with the new books. Meantime, our reluctant reader son, Stephen 10, picked up the books and started reading them. He LOVES them! It's the first time in ages he finished a chapter book. I found such delight in in listening to Stephen retell parts of the book with such excitement. The only reason I let our kids stay up late is to read. Needless to say there have been many late nights for these boys. Thank you for writing such wholesome books that boys love.
"I felt like I was in the saddle right next to Arty during his exciting (sometimes humorous) adventures. I enjoyed Arty's adventures so much that they have become a regular part of our nightly reading with our children. LD"
"I love the books. I want to buy them for my nephew for Christmas. I haven't been able to put them down. I laugh out loud at Jasper. This is a great time in my life to be reading these books because I have some of the same battles with God that Arty has over the loss of a parent. No one could have written it more clearly than you because of your experiences and watching your kids go through losing a parent. I know these books will impact many young kids. Thank you for writing them. Amy"
At only $8 each or $48 for the complete set, these books make excellent stocking stuffers or Christmas gifts. If you order by December 20, my gift to you will be free shipping.
Merry Christmas from Susie and me,
