I already shared with you the wonder Zondervan Book, The Legend of St Nicholaus, and now I have 2 more wonderful Christmas books, that are perfect for sharing the Christmas story with your family!

The First Christmas Ever

A Retelling of the Christmas Story for ages 6-10
A simple retelling of the Christmas story, from the angel’s visit to Mary to the shepherds’ joyful praise of the new born Baby, this small format paperback, The First Christmas Ever is sure to be popular with young readers. Using the vibrant and popular artwork of Dennis Jones, families can share this timeless story of God’s love each holiday season.

You may know Dennis from his Read With Me Bible series. Miss Grace instantly recognized his illustrations and had to run and grab her books to be sure! the illustrations are perfect forages 6-10- they are full of humor and emotion, and really make the story come alive for kids.  It's a really cute story and perfectly suited to using for a youth bible study or Sunday school classes, or from surprising your child, after a day of Yuletide cheer.

A Yuletide Ice Cube Fair

A new Veggie Tales Christmas classic for ages 4 and up.

It's that wonderful time of year again---the Yuletide Ice Cube Fair! It's a time of festivity and fun as veggies gather to munch on snow cones, slurp down Slushies, and ice skate on the frozen pond. But the greatest part of all is the Ice Cube Carving Contest! The veggies have been busy! They've carved Christmas feasts, trees, angels, and more. Each one is trying to outdo the other in an effort to win the grand prize! But the smallest of all these ice entries is a carving done by Junior Asparagus---a tiny stable with a shepherd on one knee. Kids will discover that it's not what's grand, or bigger, or best that's most important on Christmas---it's Jesus! Sunday morning values, Saturday morning fun. Now that's the Big Idea! Through imaginative and innovative products, Zonderkidz is feeding young souls

Miss Grace ADORED this VeggieTales book (new reprint)! Yes, she's 'out of VeggieTales', but something NEW, still gets her attention and makes her look/listen/watch. It's a lovely book about showing what Christmas is truly all about- it's not the glittery fun, the mega Yuletide displays, or the snowball fights- it's about remembering a baby born in a stable. Your entire family will get a kick out of this  book!
