This book is one of my favorite Christmas books!! It brings the meaning of Christmas and being a Christian to modern times for children. It really reminds us what Jesus wants us to do and how to add it to our own lives as well as our children's. It is really a book that should be read near the start of Advent to get the full project out of it.
I LOVE this book. It is scripturally based and the premise is that the things we do for the least of these- we do for Him. We do things for advent anyways- so It's a way to remember all of the little things/acts of kindness that we did in His name. LOVE IT!!
I purchased this book to read to my preschoolers. We set up little christmas stockings with their names on them and through out the month of December we focus on how we give gifts to Jesus through obedience, kindness etc. the children get a cardstock gift to put in their stocking each time we catch them giving gifts to Jesus. at our Christmas celebration each child empties their stocking next to the baby Jesus and its pretty amazing. This book comes with a huge sparkle box that can be placed by the tree. the book is beautiful hardcover and it will help kick off our theme of how we can all give gifts to Jesus as a way of life.
