The reason for the season!
Amid the hustle and bustle of a busy Christmas season, it is easy for a family to get lost in Santa wish lists and party invitations.
This Christmas take this book home to your family as a reminder of the true meaning of the season and what it has meant to families since the birth of Jesus into his own family. Merry Christmas!
And the angel said unto them, “Fear not: for behold, I bring unto you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.”
Audiences from religious and secular worlds alike are familiar with the comforting words from the second chapter of Luke in the King James Bible, most memorably featured in A Charlie Brown Christmas. Just as Linus reminded his community of the real meaning of Christmas, this touching tribute to an ancient text reminds us to focus on family and our fellow man instead of on gifts and indulgences. Accompanying the timeless, reassuring text is sweet, nostalgic artwork from acclaimed illustrator Lauren Castillo that embraces today’s ever-changing definition of family.
Lauren Castillo is the illustrator of several wonderful picture books including What Happens on Wednesdays by Emily Jenkins and That's Papa's Way by Kate Banks. Her books have received starred reviews from School Library Journal, Publisher's Weekly, Kirkus and Booklist. She lives in Brooklyn, NY.
