'In introductory notes, author Sally Lloyd-Jones asks, 'When does the story of Christmas begin? Does it begin in Bethlehem? Or with the angel Gabriel visiting Mary? Or with shepherds in the fields watching their flocks? Or with a bright star shining on a little stable?' This collection of stories, songs, and reflections for young children and their families is her answer. Lloyd-Jones frames her Advent and Christmas collection on the first 24 chapters of her renowned storybook Bible, The Jesus Storybook Bible, reiterating its theme--Christmas 'begins in the heart of God' and God had planned from the beginning to send a Great Rescuer to save his lost people. Perfect for families with young children, each brief Advent reflection shares a portion of Scripture, a short narrative from The Jesus Storybook Bible, and an age-appropriate question or comment for reflection. Throughout the text and on the book's back cover, buttons inviting children to 'press here' activate 20 seconds of Christmas carols or narrations by British actor, David Suchet. Artist Jago's emotive illustrations portray the wonder of God's redemptive plan and his love for his people and the world.' The Banner, December 2020 -- The Banner

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Even the few sound buttons only say a line or two, they arent reading a whole page. I just don't get the point of this?
This just does not meet my expectations at all, and I'm still trying to decide whether Ill be returning it.
This is not a stand-alone book. We were so confused for the first few days we used it. Then I realized that it just highlighted a verse in the stories in the Jesus Storybook Bible. It doesn’t explain them though, so by itself, it is confusing. Basically, it just tells you which story to read each day in The Jesus Storybook Bible. It’s not necessary at all. It doesn’t even really add anything extra to each day. It’s definitely SUPPLEMENTARY to the Jesus Storybook Bible.
The only upside is that it truly is a pretty book and has buttons that the kids liked pushing.

The stories themselves are excellent, and the artwork is beautiful. The book has a calendar recommending which story to read on which day of Advent. There are also some songs that the book plays. This is all great! I would give this book 5 stars if we didn’t already own the Jesus Storybook Bible. However we returned this book to Amazon given that we already own the stories in the Jesus Storybook Bible, and we didn’t think that the calendar & songs were worth the extra money.
