Snow Angels Blog Tour

Welcome to the blog tour for Snow Angels by Lezlie Anderson!

A winter storm, a family, and an idea for a service project all add up to a delightful Christmas surprise! When Mom and Dad suggest serving their neighbors for the holiday, their kids can’t stop grumbling. But as they secretly shovel snow, their attitudes change, and soon the parents can’t get the kids to stop serving. Share the joys of serving others in this wonderful Christmas pamphlet.

About the Author:

Lezlie Anderson has loved books since she learned to read at age four. She and her sisters used their wild imaginations playing in their backyard as princesses to being attacked by giant grasshoppers. The first books she remembers loving are “My Father’s Dragon” and “The Trouble with Miss Switch.”
Lezlie is married to a wonderful man, Steve, and they have three great children, 3 crazy cats, one tortoise, and a fish that has survived more hazards than should be possible. She loves chocolate, Dr. Pepper, and anything that her husband BBQ’s.

Struggling to get their children involved in the spirit of Christmas, some parents suggest it's time for a service project. The kids go along reluctantly, but as they work they catch the spirit and have fun. This one act of kindness soon turns into a new project for the family, acting as "snow angels" for their neighborhood. 

This was a very short and sweet story. I think we all struggle with keeping the fun of Christmas balanced with other important parts of the holiday season. For this family, this took form in serving others. By doing some helpful things for their neighbor, the family and eventually the entire neighborhood feels the spark and need to serve others. This story made me want to be better and see how I can help serve others more. It would be a great story to read aloud with the family. The length and topic are both appropriate. This booklet would also make a sweet gift for someone (maybe accompanied by some service). This Christmas I hope to be someone's angel as well.

Booklet provided for review.
