I am currently working on a post about Child-Made Gifts, so when my friend Missy, from Dot to Dot Connections, asked if I wanted to help promote her giveaway for a book on this very topic, I was quite excited at the connection!  Missy is hosting a giveaway for a copy of the book Why We Give Gifts at Christmastime by Corine Hyman, Ph.D.

I'm a huge fan of child-made gifts.  I believe that taking time to create something for others teaches kids a lot about generosity and thoughtfulness.  Teaching them to make gifts gives them skills and knowledge so they don't always have to resort to buying something mass-produced.  Kids don't have a lot (if any) money, but nurturing the spirit of giving while they are young is possible if they are taught to make it themselves.  Making simple gifts takes the stress off of finding the newest and best things to buy and brings the focus of giving back to generosity and love.  

And the good news is that you get an extra entry for this giveaway if you 'like' Back In The Hills on Facebook!  Huzzah!  Good luck to all!

The contest closes Friday, November 8th at 5:00pm CST.
