The Story of Christmas: Story Book Set & Advent Calendar
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.

This product does have great features; but,
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.
