25 Stories of Advent--December 11

Today's book is for younger children. What Is Christmas? by Michelle Medlock Adams, Ill. by Amy Wummer (Candy Cane Press, 2006) is a bright, colorful board book that looks at all the fun things about the season--Christmas trees and twinkling lights, candy canes and cookies, the Christmas play and Santa Claus--and asks the question, "What is Christmas about?" In a simple rhyme the book tells children:

All of these things are really nice,
and super-duper fun.
But Christmas is about much more than that--
It's all about God's son.

This is a great book for reading to very young children, but even my older boys still like hearing the list of all the things we all enjoy about the season even as they're reminded,

But Jesus is the real reason
We have a Christmas Day!
