God Bless Our Christmas cover


These snuggly snow animals are enjoying all the blessings of Christmas!
This sweet rhyming story will help your little ones focus on all the blessings of Christmas with family, including decorating cookies and trees, singing favorite carols, giving gifts, and celebrating Jesus!
God Bless Our Christmas has a unique black, white, blue, and red color palette that highlights the winter world of our adorable snow-animal families. The penguins, polar bears, arctic hares, snow owls, and their neighbors are each enjoying a different Christmas blessing or tradition. In the end, all of the animals gather around the tree, thankful for Jesus—the brightest part of the season.  
The third and sure to be best-selling title in the A God Bless Book series, God Bless Our Christmas features the same talented writer and illustrator used in God Bless You and Good Night and God Bless Our Easter. The padded hardcover is just one more feature that makes this book a Christmas gift Mom and Grandma won't be able to resist.


This adorable padded board book is aimed at kids ages 1-4 and is a very sweet reminder of the the lovely things that God's abundant nature gives us during the holiday season! It helps to focus little hearts on all the blessings that God gives us! The simple traditions, like finding a Christmas tree and skating on ice, are fun to witness in the adorable illustrations from Steve. This book would be adorable when paired with a stuffed animal that matches one of the animals in the book for a lovely Christmas, or Advent present, for a lucky boy or girl!
