Editorial Reviews

Back of book - Joni Eareckson Tada
�God coming to earth as a baby? That�s as incredible as fitting an oil tanker into a bath tub or a 747 into your garage. No, it�s even more astounding! Christmas may be God's greatest miracle of all and every boy and girl should be able to know why. And Why Christmas? provides an exceptional opportunity for parents and Christian leaders to lead their children through a rich and wonderful discovery behind the miracle of Christmas."
--Joni Eareckson Tada

Last week I got a wonderful surprise in the mail! It was the day before Thanksgiving and it had just crossed my mind that I would love to have a Christmas devotional to read through with my kids this year. I've had friends who've read through Benjamin's Button and Jotham's Journey over the years (both of which I haven't read but have heard good things about). But, I wanted a devotional that would take us into the Word and talk about Christmas. In the mail, I received just that! Shepherd Press published a new Christmas devotional for families this year. It is this book. Barbara Reaoch wrote 25 days of daily devotions. So, you can begin with it on December 1st, which is what we'll be doing. For each day, Ms. Reaoch has written a short talk/devotional, identified a truth to focus on, given several questions to discuss, a verse to memorize, 1 of 4 hymns to sing, and a biblical term or word to explain. These devotionals would be best for children ages 4 or 5 through 10. Younger children who are 3, with older siblings, would also be able to pay attention. There were several things that I love about this devotional. #1 The language is very appropriate for 4-10 year olds. #2 I have learned that the reading level of the Bible and hymns is high. Many of the words in the Bible and Christmas carols need to be explained to children so they can understand them. #3 It is what I was looking for. Anyways, I just wanted to post this quick review in case you, like me, are looking for something like this book.... Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this book from Shepherd Press.
