Books: Gracie’s Gift
The story starts with Gracie getting ready for her birthday party. She gets frustrated when she sees a bow sitting next to her party dress.
Why must she always have these BOWS in her hair? Why does her mommy INSIST on them?
As the story unfolds, Gracie’s mother explains that you don’t see presents wrapped without BOWS. Gracie realizes that the special bows are to celebrate her mother’s love for her.
Gracie says, “For I’m so happy that God gave you to me!”
It’s a sweet tale by Andrea Trosclair who wrote the book and was diagnosed with multiple Sclerosis in 2005. In fact, a portion of the proceeds from the book go to the MS Association of America. Trosclair has two daughters and is a registered nurse.
You can buy it at trosclairtales.com for $16.95. You can also find more info about the book and the author.
OVERALL: This book is not glitzy or aiming to be on the New York Times bestseller list. It’s a simpy illustrated book about a mother and daughter’s love. I can see it as a nice Mother’s Day gift. I also think it would be most appreciated by a family who are spiritual and perhaps wants to help the MSAA.
