Christmas is right around the corner! Do your children love reading Christmas stories as the special holiday approaches? Here are some awesome stories to add to your Christmas story library:
Start a new family tradition with The Donkey in the Living Room Nativity Set. This book—written by Sarah Raymond Cunningham with illustrations by Michael Foster—is accompanied by a nativity box set. Children will learn the true meaning of Christmas through those present at Jesus’ birth—the Donkey, Sheep, Shepherd, Angel, Camel, Wise Men, Joseph, and baby Jesus. This story is intended to be read during the nine days prior to Christmas. Wrap each nativity character and hide it for children to find. Then, you can read its corresponding story. Telling children about Jesus’ birth has never been so fun!
We are giving away 12 nativity sets over the next week! Enter here:

It’s time to look, find, and learn! In Look and Find Bible Stories: Christmas, you will read five adventure-filled stories and explore each extra-busy scene to uncover the story behind the very first Christmas. Some of the stories include: when the angel first told Mary about Jesus, the night Jesus was born, the shepherds who were told the good news from angels, the shepherd’s visit to see Jesus, and the wise men who brought Him gifts. You can search for dozens of people, animals, and objects. The large flaps allow readers to explore each scene and reveal a look-and-find checklist. A write-on-wipe-off marker will also allow readers to search over and over again and enjoy many hours of look-and-find fun! (Also available in the series is Look & Find Bible: Old Testament Stories and Look & Find Bible: New Testament Stories.)
Every mother has special memories, but Mary’s memories are like no other. In Mary’s Treasure Box, Mary, mother of Jesus, shares her favorite items in her memory box with her granddaughter, Hannah. She has filled her box with bits of straw from a manger, a little gold from the Magi, and other dear reminders of one silent night in a Bethlehem stable. Join them as they revisit the simple splendor of the Nativity story.
Jesus is the reason for the season! Revolve your story time around His birth this Christmas season. It’s never too early to be telling your children about that special night!
