    I ordered this for my daughter to use with her three year old daughter. It is simple and easy to use with children of this age and will keep their attention during the busy advent season.

    Do you remember how hard it was to wait for Christmas when you were a kid? In an effort to help the time pass more quickly, Dr. Mary Manz Simon's My First Countdown to Christmas offers not only the true story of the first Christmas, but also activities and prayers to help the days pass more quickly.

    Each two page spread of this board book features a short devotional. Some of them tell a part of the story of Jesus' birth, while others discuss popular Christmas things like evergreen Christmas trees, bells, and cookies. Many pages also offer ideas for simple projects, like an Advent paper chain, homemade Christmas tree decorations, or figuring out a way to tell someone "I love you" without speaking the words. A short, simple prayer is also included for each spread, often with blanks for kids to fill in. For example, "The shepherds told people about Jesus. I can tell people about Jesus, too. I can tell --------. Amen." A paraphrased Bible verse is also included with each devotional.

    Throughout, bright, colorful illustrations by Siobhan Harrison show young children of many ethnicities involved in Christmas activities like visiting relatives, using an Advent calendar, decorating the tree, and dancing and singing.

    What I Like: Pretty much everything. Each devotional is short and simple - perfect for toddlers and preschoolers. I like the simple suggested activities and I appreciate the focus on Jesus as "the reason for the season.

    What I Dislike: My only complaint is that while Jesus is spoken of as the reason we celebrate Christmas (indeed, the author states "Jesus was born at Christmas" - not entirely accurate, but probably passable for young kids), the author doesn't tell us why he's important. We don't learn he's the son of God or that he came to save us from our sins. This is left for parents to bring up.

    Overall Rating: Very good.
