This is a gentle and lovely Christmas book. I highly recommend it. The stories for each day are very short and appropriate for children's attetion span. Each lesson has a moral taught by a loving mother bear.

I took out a bunch of books about Advent this year, hoping to share some of the meaning of Christmas with my children before the day arrived. This was by far the winner! We loved it so much, I bought it so we could read it in years to come. My daughter has insisted we read it each night since, through January. The stories are simple, short, and very meaningful. They can be a conversation starter or stand on their own. Each day is different, while the bear stays as the central character. It is a truly wonderful book I would highly recommend to ANYONE.

I came across this book in mid December 2008 and I liked it.There are 25 stories for each day till Christmas Day and each story teaches us something special. We learn a lot about what Christmas actually is, on the journey till Christmas day. We make the journey alongwith all the characters in the book to see Baby Jesus. It is going to become the tradition in our family to read this book every year during Advent right from the 1st day of December till the 25th December - Christmas. We are all going to make the journey to Bethlehem alongwith all the characters in the book. I am so glad that I bought this book ! It is truly inspirational and uplifting to read each of the stories. A must have for the home library !

I bought this to replace the candy advent calendar and am glad I did...my kids had a great time listening to the stories and looked forward to the next night when we could oontinue reading. It also served as a great springboard for discussion and helped us teach our kids a little more about the true meaning of Christmas. Would highly recommend...would make a great gift!
