YAY! It's a Tommy Nelson day! At least that's what my kids say. :) We began reading One Wintry Night tonight and of course, the kids love it already. I loved that with the variety in age (almost 11 years old down to 21 months) for the younger 5 of the Woj tribe, the chapter of two pages was just perfect for everyone to listen. The book is designed for ages 4-7, but we had all listening ears … [Read more...] about One Wintry Night- Children’s Book Giveaway
