Bargain Priced Books :: The Year of the Perfect Christmas Tree & Little House 9-Book Box Set

by | Nov 29, 2014 | Bargain Books | 6 comments

One of the new additions to our Advent & Christmas book collection this year, after having it recommended many times in the past, is The Year of the Perfect Christmas Tree.

I purchased a secondhand copy of the hardcover edition earlier this year, but right now you can purchase the paperback at 42% off!

Amazon is also currently offering an extra 30% Off Any Book (up to $10) with promo code HOLIDAY30 at checkout.

My girls have been reading my old collection of Little House on the Prairie Books once again and they are literally falling apart. I used my code to save an additional $10 on a new Little House 9-Book Box Set (which is currently 44% off!) bringing the final cost down to just $2.84 per book!

    Just a little warning. The newer editions of the little house have been changed. They made them politically correct. I always buy the used older editions for my girls collections. God bless. FYI- we are very blessed to have your brother in law here at Mater Dei.

    How can you tell if a set has been revised or not? I'm not seeing that mentioned anywhere. Do you know what year the changes were made? My copies are the 1971 printing, complete with all the lovely illustrations by Garth Williams…

    One last question. . . Can you tell me which set you look for for your girls? I ran across an article talking about the revisions made to the 1935 edition, by Wilder and her editor, so I guess my childhood set had been revised too.

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
