We at Bonsai Books wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
The Christmas Season is such a wonderful time of year, but it can also be a time when we can get caught up in the busyness that takes us away from its true meaning. This is the first Christmas for Bonsai Books and we hope that your family’s holidays will be filled with the true peace and joy that come from celebrating the birth of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
Life has been active and lively this year for Bonsai Books with the forming of the company in the spring, writing and illustrating stories and designing postcards. Many hands have come together and played a part in this labor of love. I am most grateful for my family and new friends that have made significant contributions to creating our first books and postcards. Our hope is that Bonsai stories and artwork will leave your family with a feeling of goodness and fond memories.
Now for the latest happening “beneath the Bonsai”:
Our first children’ book, God Loves You So Much, is currently in the process of being printed. It is an endearing little story about how truly special you are to God who loves you as a most perfect and caring Father. After all, He created Heaven, Earth and all that exists, “just for you!”
We also have two books in the editing phase. Just a little tweaking of the stories and final refinements to the illustrations are all that is needed. The first book is titled Charlie Meets the Lady in White, a story about a playful Labrador Retriever who goes on an adventure and ends up in Fatima, Portugal in 1917. Charlie travels the world in search of his owner’s daughter so that she can care for her sick father. This leads to Charlie’s discovery of the little hamlet of Fatima. There he becomes fast friends with three shepherd children who are soon visited over the course of several months by the Lady in White from Heaven. Their encounters with this Lady become life changing both for them and for the world.
The second book being edited is titled Anna and the Christmas Angel. This story is about a little girl named Anna, who lives in Cologne, Germany. She is on pins and needles with excitement as the holidays are fast approaching. One day when wandering through the Christmas Market, she comes across a lovely doll named Gabrielle. Anna knows immediately that she must have her as her own. In the midst of all the festivities and presents, Anna loses sight of the true meaning of Christmas. With the aide of an Angel, Anna enters into the holy and historical event that took place 2,000 years ago. She discovers the true story of the little family’s journey to Bethlehem and comes to keep Christmas well.
I, too, am on pins and needles with anticipation of the first book’s arrival. I very much look forward to having an actual printed book that I may read to my grandchildren (or, in the case of my youngest granddaughter, something for her chewing pleasure, literally “chewing on every word!”)
Thank you for visiting and please come back and see us. We at Bonsai Books wish you all the best and look forward to meeting you under the Bonsai. Happy reading!
Holy Family, pray for us.
