One of my favorites! Dec 23, 2008
I love reading this book to my four year old! And she picks it on her own for me to read it to her! The story told on CD is a fun for her too! I highly recommend this book!
Great item, but the amazon sellers are price gouging Dec 14, 2008
This item is available from Family Life for $9 to $12 depending on how many you buy. It is a great ministry tool, and is great quality. It is such good quality that they Family Life probably is selling at cost. Every Christian family should have one, and give them to friends, too. It is outrageous that this site sellers are trying to take advantage of people by selling this readily available nativity story for as much as $79. I guess they are trying to take advantage of people who have seen this great product and for religious reasons really want it in their home. Shame on these sellers for trying to exploit peoples' faith like this.
A great way to tell the Christmas story Dec 14, 2005
My daughter recently asked me, "So what can we give Jesus for Christmas?" Bingo! This kit is basically a nativity scene with a twist.
Included is a book with 7 sessions that can be done whenever you like (we're doing two a week), 7 reusable presents (one to open at each session), and a manger. Six presents contain pieces to the nativity, and in the seventh box is a mirror. Hence, what can we give Jesus for Christmas? Ourselves!
This has been great for teaching my 3-year-old very visual daughter about Christmas and Jesus' birth, and my 1-year-old son really loves to play with it to. Which brings me to my only complaint: The manger is paper tacked to foam core, which is fine but will probably not last past this Christmas. It has already started to come apart in several places. The figures are tiny yet lovely (though Gabriel does look quite feminine) and should last for some time if not handled too roughly. I plan to use the book and presents next year and the year after.
As a closing note, the book mentions that this is a great way to present the plan of salvation (i.e. give yourself to Jesus), and I think so too!
FamilyLife does it again! :) Nov 22, 2005
This is a wonderful resource! It's a creative way to tell the Christmas story and the figures are very nice - not cheap looking. It's very easy to use and great for the whole family!
Wow - what an awesome nativity Nov 19, 2005
Our kids want to play with this over & over & over...and it's made to do that...we don't have to say, "don't touch". This new FamilyLife product tells the Christmas story in a new, fresh, and very personal way. We think it will have a huge effect on "kids of all ages"....grown ups too !!! Way to go FamilyLife team...we love your Resurrection Eggs too!!!!
