I cannot recall any of the holiday gifts I received when I was 2, 3, 4, or even 5 years old; however, I do vividly recall the books that were read to me over and over (and then later, the books I learned to read with), and I even remember their message. For example, “Green Eggs and Ham”, by Dr. Seuss, is one of my life mantra’s: Try everything at least once (even cliff-diving in Hawaii, or moving to Africa when you are 18 years old!) Or , what about a book as simple as “Goodnight Moon”? And who can forget “The Giving Tree” by Shel Silverstein, or Maurice Sendak’s “Where the Wild Things Are”?
I know you are all being flooded with holiday gift discounts, sales and such, but this year you have the opportunity to give a brand new, conscientious series of early children’s books, called Wise Heart Books. People cannot buy these books at Borders, Target or Wal-Mart, so no worries about a gift faux-pas!
The Wise Heart Books’ “Smart Values Series” is a collection of five delightful stories that help children understand the positive and transformative nature of good values. Each story describes how certain values – such as generosity, cleanliness, and honesty – can change us for the better and just for the holidays: you can get all five books for only $24.99. Or you can buy them separately for only $6.99 each (but this does not include shipping and handling—which makes me question, what exactly do they mean by handling?!!!).
To take a peek for yourself of these artistic new books before they hit Borders, please visit: http://www.wiseheartbooks.com/
On top of your gift to your favorite niece or your colleague that just had a baby boy, the proceeds to go to the Women’s Well-Being and Development Foundation (http://www.wwd-f.org/index.html) youth educational programs in La Carpio, the slums of San Jose, Costa Rica. We are currently in the process of developing 3 slum houses into an eco-friendly community play, learn and community center.
And only until Christmas, are we offering this deal:
5 books for only $24.99 (this is 20% off the regular price!!!)
$6.99 a book
(does not include shipping and handling)
Free shipping for orders over $50
