Product Description

Wonderfully illustrated and brimming with holiday spirit, The Story of Christmas advent calendar features 24 jewel-like miniature board books nestled in a three-paneled, stand-alone backer. The books are numbered 1 through 24, and, like the peek-a-boo windows on an Advent calendar, are meant to be opened one per day from December 1st through Christmas Eve. Read in sequence, they capture the magic of the first Christmas, from Gabriel's visit to Mary (Book 4) to the Three Wise Men gazing at the star (Book 9) to Jesus' birth (Book 24). Each book is one of four different trim sizes and features a gold thread loop so it can be hung on the Christmas tree

It's back! The Story of Christmas, the innovative Advent calendar, story book set, and tree-trimming keepsake.

Wonderfully illustrated and brimming with holiday spirit, the calendar features 24 jewel-like miniature board books nestled in a three-paneled, stand-alone backer.

Each book is one of four different trim sizes and features a gold thread loop so that after it's read, it can be hung on the Christmas tree

    wonderful tool

    Purchased this product several years ago and have enjoyed using it as a tool to get our "focus" on the true gift of Christmas. We have friends, and/or family, over and pass out each book to those attending. We then read the books in order, thus everyone has a part in the telling of Jesus coming to earth for our salvation. It is a special time together followed by blowing out the candle on Jesus' birthday cake.

    I had expected Biblical verses and their reference chapter/verse from Matthew, Mark, Luke or John rather than the ad libbing---sadly sent them all back. Just not what I had really wanted. Sorry----

    I was very excited to get this book set / advent calendar. I ordered one for me, one for my sister and one for my brother-in-law's family. As soon as they came, I eagerly read each book and then promptly repacked them for a return. I will not spend time reading books to my children that tell an inaccurate or embellished account of Jesus' birth. I don't know why anyone would. I certainly wish that I had noticed the one review that calls the books historical fiction. I never would have purchased them.

    Great gift or for your own children. Bought one several years ago and have been looking for them ever since. What a great surprise to find it back in print.

    I received this calendar as a gift 18 years ago when my son was born. I used it through 2 children and still love it. We would read one "book" each night, then hang them on a little tree that I had in the children's rooms. Now, I am buying it for special friends with young children.
