Advent Book Calendar

Christmas | February 6, 2021

How does your family celebrate the waiting?

Advent has a long and interesting history with various traditions popping up throughout.  Advent means “coming” in Latin.  Today Christians use the season of advent to celebrate the coming of Jesus into the world and it is also symbolic as the church waits for Christs’ return.

It is common to light a candle and read from the scriptures on the four Sundays leading up to Christmas Day.  There are numerous ways that a family can use this season to teach their children about Christ’s birth and his return. I encourage you to develop traditions that mark this time.  The traditions can be used to draw you away from the overwhelming pace that is so typical of this season.  They will remind you and your family about the joyous anticipation that awaits believers.

This package will take you through 24 days of Advent with a wonderful 25th book to open on Christmas Day. Each book has been carefully selected to help kids think about waiting and preparing. It includes classic tales of the season, from the real story of Saint Nicholas, The Nutcracker, and of course the tale of a Grinch who stole Christmas. It ends with a beautiful book that tells the story of Christmas using art masterpieces and texts directly from Scripture. This package will have a little something for everyone to revisit every year.
