Based on the overwhelming success of The Greatest Gift, Ann Voskamp has expanded her presentation of the timeless Advent tradition of the Jesse Tree so families can celebrate together. Each day, families can read the provided Scripture passage (in connection with the original book), engage with a specially written devotion to help children of all ages understand the Advent theme for the day, and participate in suggested activities to apply the theme.
This special edition is beautifully illustrated. It can serve as a precious guide to help recapture the sacredness of the Advent season and to help the entire family understand and celebrate the epic pageantry of humankind from Adam to the Messiah.

BrenAge: 45-54Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5No OrnamentsNovember 28, 2017BrenAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 3Meets Expectations: 3I expected usable ornaments or at least patterns. What I was able to download were just pictures of ornaments and not very good pictures. For a little more at bookstores this book comes with a box of ornaments. The book itself is lovely, I just feel it was misleading advertisement.
sangtexasAge: 35-44Gender: Female3 Stars Out Of 5Pretty book but the stories drag way more than they shouldDecember 31, 2016sangtexasAge: 35-44Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 3Meets Expectations: 3I bought this for my 10 and 7 year old. We read the Bible every night, so most of these stories were not new to them. We liked how every story (Adam and Eve, Abraham, David...) all point to Jesus. The pictures were also very beautiful. First was a page with excerpts from the Bible, followed by a 2-3 pages expanding on the story. The style was similar to "The Jesus Storybook Bible" by Sally Lloyd-Jones except longer and way more mushy than it needed to be.
