Jesus Calling: The Story of Christmas by Sarah Young and Illustrated by Katya Longhi
Jesus Calling:The Story of Christmas has twelve devotional readings for young children. At the start of the book, after the presentation page, Sarah Young write a one page letter to parents and grandparents telling about her family and why she wrote the book as well as her hopes for the book. I especially liked this added touch. The book then goes into the brightly illustrated pages with the devotions, most of which are on two pages. Each devotion has a Scripture reading, followed be the devotion and ending with a reminder of who Jesus is and what he does in the Jesus Calling section.
I think Jesus Calling:The Story of Christmas would be a great addition to any family's Christmas readings and traditional books to use year after year. If you are a fan of the other Jesus Calling series books, it will be especially meaningful. The book is suggested for ages four to eight and that seems about right as I read through it. Of course, it would make a great book for the whole family to enjoy together with all ages. The pages are a fairly heavy stock and should last a good long time with care. I would recommend it to any family as an addition to their Christmas tradition library.
I received a copy of this book at no charge from Tommy Nelson. I was not required to write a positive review.
