Getting Ready for Christmas
This Advent resource helps families, with children 4 to 8, count the days until Jesus birthday. Each day Scripture passages and charming illustrations are combined with a pray and Advent activity help young children prepare for the Messiahs birth. Children will quickly grow accustomed to setting aside time each day to learn how Jesus was the fulfillment of Old Testament prophecy of the Savior. They will become familiar with the secondary characters in the Christmas story. And they will learn why we need Jesus to come - to save us from our sins. A simple, practical Advent resource, this book can be used by the whole family. It serves to review the Bible story, focus hearts and minds on Christ (prayer), and carry out that focus in an activity.
