For the past few weeks my son has been stalking our mailbox. He’s been so helpful offering to run out and get the mail for me but what I didn’t realize was that he had an ulterior motive. He’s been waiting for one that special piece of mail that he’ll be glued to for the next few weeks. That’s right, The Great Big Toys “R” Us Book of Awesome. The look of sheer joy on his face last Friday when it arrived was pricesless. I knew it arrived by the screams of “It’s here! It’s here!” coming from the front yard.
Let me just tell you he’s been pouring over this book every free minute he’s had. It even goes to bed with him while he precisly examines each page for his favorite items to add to his Christmas wish-list.
Ya’ll this book is like gold to this child right now. Big red circles have started appearing all over the pages as he studies all the goodies throughout the book. By now The Great Big Toys “R” Us Book of Awesome has arrived or will be arriving to homes all over the US. The book is packed with nearly 1,000 of this year’s hottest toys and games.
