The Story of Christmas

The Story of Christmas by Gwen Ellis is great in telling about the Christmas story, starting with the angels message to Zechariah in the Gospel of Luke. The stories are well-written and kept simple for younger children, the older children can move on with deeper study and discussion using the verse reference given for each story.

We enjoyed reading through this book and will continue to not just during the Christmas season, but a few weeks before Easter, as it would work wonderfully as a springboard into the life of Christ and His goal of the cross. This is also a wonderful book to work through as a devotional in the weeks leading up to Christmas. The only thing I didn't care for was the cartoon type characters. My son was distracted by their noses, said they look like they stole them from muppets. Other than that, a great book! I highly recommend it. And, there's a DVD with the story animated and coloring pages to enhance your child's experience.
