I have just read this lovely children’s Christmas story to my three girls who are 11, 8 and 5 years old. It was lovely to talk about where we can find the true meaning of Christmas from looking at the trappings of Christmas in a different light. From gifts, we can remember God’s gift of Jesus, from the Christmas tree we can remember the tree where Jesus sacrificed his life, from Christmas guests we can remember the wise men, and so on. Karen Kingsbury’s verses are short and rhythmic, perfect for little ones to follow. The illustrations by Daniel Brown compliment the written word and my girls particularly enjoyed guessing what the expressions on the people’s faces said about their thoughts.
We Believe in Christmas is a lovely way to share with children that Christmas is so much more than shopping and food and toys. Perfect for your children or grandchildren to enjoy year after year.
