Wonderful story of Advent and preparation for Christmas Jan 22, 2008
My children loved this story. We used this book to introduce our children to the idea of Advent and and what Advent means. We wanted to make the time leading up to Christmas much more meaningful and much less commercial. We found a product we liked for celebrating the Advent season, but we used this book to help our boys understand the concept. This is a delightful and helpful book!
