The Empty Hook -An Ornament’s Tale ties family and holiday traditions together in a story told by a special set of ornaments. The Empty Hook is a simple story about the true meaning of Christmas. It is written in the story telling style I grew up with in the 1970’s. A gifted German glassblower uses his gift of glassblowing to bring joy to others while giving glory to God. A loving father travels to the glassblower and receives a special set of ornaments. A young boy, Milo, cherishes the ornaments for a lifetime. Then there is an empty hook and a beautiful story to be told. The Gift of Christmas is with you, remember Him on His day.
” Great stories, Wonderful pictures”
Five Star Review on Amazon By Nancy J. Cook
I wanted a simple story to read to my grandchildren but didn’t want the traditional Santa/Reindeer story and we have all the Jesus/Manger books. This book fits the bill. The story is very simple but has a great moral to it. The pictures and colors are wonderful and hold the attention of even the youngest of the children. The ornaments have a personality of their own and the grandpa is wonderful. Would recommend it to all, whether you are “religious” or just family oriented at the holidays.
