Are you excited for the holidays? Where did this year go? In a few weeks it will be the New Year and we’ll be celebrating 2016 with a bang! We’re part of the fun Twas The Hop Before Christmas blogger event where you can win a lot of great prizes. TKDI has a neat children’s book called ‘The Night the Lights Went Out On Christmas up for grabs.
Paul’s second children’s book tells the story of Christmas Block, a neighborhood renowned for its cacophony of decorations as families compete to have the biggest and brightest display each season. One year, however, they take it one Christmas light too far and blow out the power for the neighborhood, then the country, and then the entire world! What could be a disaster turns into a blessing in disguise as the neighbors realize the universe has been putting on a light show of its own, and are reminded that it’s the simple joys that truly make the holidays magical. Richly colored illustrations grow brighter and brighter as more lights join the fray with every turn of the page and young readers will delight in spotting new decorations in each vibrant image. Based upon Paul‘s song of the same name, this read aloud is a funny, sweet, modern fable about seeing beyond the sparkle and finding the true joy of the season.
Ellis Paul is a critically acclaimed singer, songwriter, poet and troubadour. He is the recipient of fifteen Boston Music Awards, second only to multi-platinum act Aerosmith. Since launching from Boston, Ellis has built a vast catalog of music, which weds striking poetic imagery and philosophical introspection with hook-laden melodies. He averages 150 shows a year and travels across America and Europe, playing venues from church basements to Carnegie Hall. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame invited Ellis to pay tribute to his hero Woody Guthrie, who has influenced and inspired Ellis in a profound way.
