Tillie’s Magical Christmas Ride - Children's Book #Giveaway! (U.S.) Ends 12/6 #HolidayGiftGuide

Imagine a world with no Christmas. For Lupe Almaguer Cruz, celebrating Christmas only occurred in her dreams. Cruz was one of eight siblings born to migrant working parents that constantly traveled in order to work. Beginning at 5-years-old, Cruz and her siblings labored in the fields making education inaccessible and Christmas presents and decorations simply out of reach. It wasn’t until Cruz was 7-years-old that she first heard of the legendary Christmas figure, Santa Claus, and that night she had a magical dream that she met him.

After many years of thirsting for knowledge, Cruz accomplished her goal of teaching herself how to read and write English. Today she turned that 7-year-old girls dream into an adventurous children’s Christmas book. “Tillie’s Magical Christmas Ride” brings to life a young girl’s imagination and a Christmas ride as Santa’s helper that shows readers the true meaning of the holiday.

"Tillie’s Magical Christmas Ride" is currently available in softcover, hardcover, e-book. Available for purchase on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Archway Publishing.

About the author
This is Lupe Almaguer Cruz’s first children’s book. Spanish is her first language, but at the age of 59 she taught herself how to read and write English above a 3rd grade level. Today Cruz is an accomplished woman holding a license in foster care and real estate, and is a real estate investor.

My Review:
My 6 year old daughter is currently reading this book and she's on chapter 4, which is only page 6. There is a lot to read in this book. It's more suited for children reading at a 2nd Grade level or more. What is said above mostly describes the story. Tillie meets a baby reindeer, and her name is the same as my daughter's, Chloe! So cute! My daughter is going to love finding that out as she gets more into the book! This book is great for bedtime in that you can read a few pages or chapters with your child each night until your finished! Your child will love finding out what's going to happen next.

Win It!

Enter below using the Rafflecopter form for a chance to win your own copy of "Tillie’s Magical Christmas Ride." Giveaway is open to residents in the main 48 continental United States only.
