A Real Christmas book Dec 12, 2006
This brightly illustrated book does a wonderful job explaining different Christmas symbols: lights, Christmas trees, angels, and presents; in light of the true meaning of Christmas, Jesus' birth. My 3-year-old son loves this book and asks for it more than he does the Santa Claus books. This book has helped me to have conversations with my children about Jesus as we enjoy all of our Christmas traditions. I highly recommend it! For more ideas on bringing Christ back to Christmas, check out Lisa Whelchel's The Adventure of Christmas.
The Perfect Balance Nov 17, 2004
I am a mom to three (7,6, 3.5)and a preschool toddler teacher at a Christian preschool. I was so thrilled to find this book...it's the perfect balance in regard to explaining the religious AND secular aspects of Christmas celebrations! It really breaks it all down into things the young ones can understand without losing the religious meaning or sacrificing the customs and traditions that they have come to associate with the holiday. I highly recommend this book!
