AUTHOR: Anna Jurinich
The Christmas Odd Box
In January 2000, after placing all her different Christmas ornaments in a box and placing the lid, Anna looked at the box and said out loud, “You guys be good in there.” Thinking how that box imitated the world we live in, all of us being so different. Seizing this thought as an inspiration for a book she immediately started working on the first illustration.
Fourteen years later, here is the book, ---The Christmas Odd Box. A relentless idea that was interrupted numerous times followed by even stronger determination to bring this book to fruition. Exquisitely illustrated the book’s whimsical characters and situations are written so children of all ages can relate to and enjoy. Anna’s main purpose however is that Jesus and His message of love be the central theme that flows throughout the book. This book is sure to engage and invite as well as encourage the young readers to use their own wonderful imagination.
