Very simple verse and prayer, along with an activity. My 4- and 5- year olds are enjoying it, and it makes for an easy Advent tradition. A couple of the activities are a bit abstract ("Think of someone who turned out different than you expected" -- that one stumped them. But most are easy and fun.
This is a fantastic book for my 5-year-old son. The reflection, verse and prayer are exactly the right length for a child, and very accessible. While we're doing the activity we talk more about the meaning of Christmas. I highly recommend this book.
This is a good book for short Advent devotions for those little ones (we have a 3-year old and 18-month old). Some of the activities we really enjoy; however, some of the questions and activities suggested are a little beyond their age. Some creativity will be needed for parents of young (<4 years) children.
I have been looking for a family devotional to help us all keep the right perspective every Christmas. I just received the book and started it with my 2 boys, 4 and 2. Last night, we read a short bible verse and then an activity. We all then, drew a picture of Gabriel, the angel who spoke to Mary to give her the good news, that she would carry a son named Jesus! My heart feels full that I can help encourage my boys to realize that Christmas is ALL about a child, a child named Jesus. It's his Birthday we are counting down.
