READ with ME! “Visions of Light: A Christmas Story”

Today I am excited to introduce you to a friend.  Her name is Piper Hawkins and she is 9 years old.  She is an author of the newly released book, “Visions of Light: A Christmas Story.”


Piper is a friend of my daughter’s and her mom, Kristen, is a great friend of mine. Piper’s a pretty typical 4th grade girl, but one with BIG dreams.  She has always had a passion for writing and has penned over 400 homemade books since the time she could color.  Authoring her own book is something she always wanted to do.  I personally know all the hard work her mom put into making her dream of becoming an author come true!

Here she is surrounded by all her homemade books.


Our local newspaper did an article on our little author.  You can read more about Piper and her story,  here.

Here is a synopsis of the Christmas book:

When young Alice and her kindly old neighbor, Mr. Fredricks (who always reminds Alice of Santa Claus), accidentally collide in the hall of their apartment building, his glasses fall off — and that’s when the magic begins! Alice puts on the glasses out of curiosity and is enchanted to see what Mr. Fredricks sees: the love and light in others.

Join Alice and Mr. Fredricks on a magical journey down Main Street, and let Mr. Fredricks show how kindness towards others makes a difference in us all. You won’t want to miss what Alice adds to her Christmas wish list after this special day!

Beautifully illustrated, professionally edited and printed in high quality paper with a laminated cover, this book will bring Christmas magic to every day as a reminder to treat others well.

It’s a wonderfully inspiring book and would make a great addition to your Christmas collection.  You won’t be disappointed!
