Teach your children the story of Christmas . . . starting from creation! In Jesus Calling®: The Story of Christmas, children will discover that God always had a plan for Christmas.
Christ was chosen before the world was made. —1 Peter 1:20 The Christmas story began long, long ago. Before the angel Gabriel told Mary she would have God’s Son. Before the shepherds saw the angels and before the wise men saw the star. Even before the sun and the moon shone for the first time, before the first cows ever moooed and the first monkeys ever climbed! Before Adam and Even took their first walk in the Garden of Eden, God had a plan for Christmas. From the beginning of time, God had a plan to save his children. That plan was Jesus! Jesus Calling®: The Story of Christmas is a beautifully embellished jacketed hardcover with foil and glitter. Curl up with your little ones around the Christmas tree with Jesus Calling®: The Story of Christmas.

This is such a beautiful book! The message of the book is great, it tells the story of Christmas ad includes both Biblical Scripture, as well as the longer birth story. The illustrations are gorgeous and certainly add to the beauty of the book. The illustrations will also help children stay interested in the story, as well as maybe understanding it better. I think this would be a great book to use in a Sunday School or Children in Worship setting around the holidays, but also great for personal use at home. Great book explaining the Christmas story both through pictures and scripture.

Thank you to the publisher, Thomas Nelson, for sending me a review copy of this book.
