I recently had the pleasure of reading an adorable book with Ana, "Give" from goodjoe.com, a picture book that was a collaboration of several artists. Check out the video for her first reaction:

I visited the offical website to check out more about the Campaign: "This 20-page book is part of the unique and limited edition rewards for the Goodjoe Joy of Giving Campaign. This holiday season, goodjoe and our community of artists bring you “The Joy of Giving,” a collaboration design that was the combined effort of 17 talented artists. They worked together from the initial concept to the final layout. The concept was orchestrated as follows... The first artist of the 17 involved started out by creatively selecting 2 characters, then illustrating an act of giving and receiving between them. The next artist in line then took the receiving character and illustrated him giving to a new character. Then the next artist took that receiving character and illustrated him giving to another new character, and so on, and so forth. The artists continued until all 17 had created a chain of giving, which finally circled back around. In the final act of giving, the very first character becomes the receiver, and the circle is complete. As a result, we have a collaboration design called “The Joy of Giving.” I absolutely love this concept and this season have been really inspired to Give, whether directly with presents (we sponsored a baby girl and had so much fun buying her presents and spoiling her with girly stuff) or indirectly with support for family and friends."
Check out the website and you can pledge to help the cause. Buy a t shirt and help the nonprofits out! I really love that the artists get voted on, and you can help choose the art. The tshirts look really cool too! Surely you have $3 for a tshirt! (we are on the wall of goodness after buying one) Check out their video for all of the important info here:

I love it!! This book is such a great stocking stuffer, and wonderful for teaching children to share and be kind. I will be reading it to Ana over and over.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
