Editorial Reviews

Tina B Tessina
“WHY DIDN'T SOMEONE DO THIS BEFORE?” “Storybook Advent Calendar makes me think ‘Why didn't someone do this before?’ It's uplifting, educational, and celebratory for adults and children. I especially like the entry for December 7, which explains the similarities and differences of Christianity, Judaism and Islam in a simple, profound and beautiful way.” Tina B. Tessina, PhD, psychotherapist and author of Money, Sex and Kids: Stop Fighting

“I AM AWESTRUCK” "I am awestruck with the book's warmth, its caring and loving sentiment, and totally enamored with the artwork!" Jeri Friedman, Los Lunas, New Mexico

“The Storybook Advent Calendar reminds adults and teaches children the roots of the holiday. Stories flow with a wonderful mix of new and old. From classics like The Matchstick Girl to timeless treasures such as The Three Trees, this collection will promote important conversations between parents and children, including the addition of an original story teaching how the Christian, Muslim and Jewish faiths relate to each other and have more in common than not.

    Wow! What a Fabulous addition to Christmas!

    I absolutely love this a storybook and music albums that go with it. Plus the history of the classic stories and the amazingly timely relevance of the original stories. This is a book for Christians who want to teach their children real Christianity without having agendas shoved down their throat. It's Christian, real Christianity rather than the more extreme versions popularized today and I thank God for that. Touching, informative, amazing illustrations, it's just a joy and a wonderful way to reintroduce the true meaning of Christmas into the season as well as learn about classic literature, classic music and history. Cannot recommend it enough!

    I'm trying to do the 'also recommend' but I can't find the music CDs on B&N, but they're both excellent: Storybook Advent Carols Collections Volumes One and Two. Probably just haven't posted yet.
