This is a great story; very captivating, lots of cliff hangers. It is designed to read one chapter each night during Advent but our entire family wants to keep on reading multiple chapters a day.

Hands down - a family favorite of ours over the past 12 years! The #1 book in a Trilogy (#2 Bartholomew's Passage & #3 Tabitha's Travels) by Arnold Ytreeide. We have read each book at least 3 or 4 times. Read one chapter a night during Advent. Each chapter is a cliffhanger! We have made each other promise not to read ahead! It's a wonderful way to end the day as a family. I have given these as gifts and every single family has enjoyed them.

I've never written a book review before; so this book really made an impact on our entire family. We read it together, and everyone in the family LOVED it, even my youngest (age 9) and my husband. On Christmas Eve, we were in the car coming back from a family affair and read the last two chapters. It was exciting and fun and helped us all to think about the true meaning of Christmas. This book made our Christmas! We will always remember it as one of the really meaningful things we have enjoyed together as a family. I hope to find the other books written by this same author so we can read another one next Christmas.

"Jotham's Journey is a MUST HAVE book for every household. This is a daily reader of approx 20 minutes each night of the Advent season (except for the first night which is about 30 minutes). It is not a book for all ages as it is not a picture book. I recommend this book for all ages from 8 to 80 years of age. This story follows an adventure of Jotham, who is 10 years of age, and his family's adventure as they travel to seek out their Savior in the days before and coming to the birth of Christ, ending in a cliffhanger every night. I have personally bought several of these books in November to get them into the hands of families for the Advent season. I continue to purchase this book to give them away and have purchase somewhere in excess of 50 copies. There are two sequels to this book which are Bartholomew's Passage and Tabitha's Travels which are good books, but not the same quality of Jotham's Journey. The only drawback for this book is that you will need to hide it from your young readers, as they will want to continue to read on after the cliffhanger ending. This will become a family favorite for the Advent season."

Absolutely terrific for tying all the advent events together. Generates great discussion about the event leading to Christ's birth while presenting the story through the eyes of a child. Our children begged for the daily readings.

I read this to my children each day of Advent. Each day they would beg me to read on and not stop!! This book was a wonderful experience for all of us - me included!! I'm looking forward to next Advent when we can read one of the others. I recommend this to anyone that will listen - or read!! 8-) If you're looking for a practical way to give Advent special meaning and to bring your family closer - this is it!! Share this with your family, you won't be sorry!

I am a fourth grade teacher and read this to my students during Advent. They were captivated and begged me to read more during the day. All of them would be mesmerized as I read. To capture the attention of 14 active fourth graders at once is a feat!
