Item description for What Is Christmas? by Michelle Medlock Adams...
Overview Presents young readers with all the symbols of Christmas, such as the tree, gifts, songs, and Santa Claus, but concludes there is only one real reason for Christmas.
Community Description Christian parents have long struggled with the question, "Should we celebrate Christmas the way the world celebrates the holiday season-filled with Santa Claus, flying reindeer and toy-making elves?" Some believe that children might confuse the make-believe story of Santa with the real story of Jesus Christ's birth. Others feel that Christmas wouldn't be the same without including the jolly, white-bearded Santa in the festivities.
In her latest children's book, "What Is Christmas?" award-winning author and former Asbury student Michelle Medlock '91 Adams addresses this longstanding debate. Through her rhyming board book text, Adams teaches that it's OK to give brightly-wrapped packages, send colorful Christmas cards, bake yummy Christmas cookies and sit on Santa's lap, as long as you know the real reason we celebrate Christmas-the birth of Jesus Christ, God's precious Son.

Great Book to explain the real meaning of Christmas Jan 9, 2007
This book is a great way to explain to our children that Christmas is not just for gifts and all the other great things that go with celebrating Christmas. It shows that Jesus is the real reason we celebrate Christmas. Great Christmas book
What a wonderful book for children . . . Oct 1, 2006
I just received this book and was so impressed with the message to help remind us all (big or small) the reason for celebrating Christmas while still acknowledging other activities of the season many enjoy. This book really provides a good balance while still stressing that the reason for season is the birth of Jesus. I will be recomending this book on my site www.christmasorganizing.com as a top pick for children's Christmas books.
