1. Well written.
2. Nice size story for each night of advent to go along with our other advent activities.
3. A little bear is following the Star to Bethlehem.
4. The pictures are lovely
1. Day 13 the picture shows bloody footprints in the snow leading to a dog house and a dog. The story reveals a thorn was in a dog's paw. My 11 year old remembered that page from the past and asked me to skip that day this year.
2. Day 14 states that a robber plans to rob and kill the little bear and lamb and it discusses this throughout the story that day. I only said "rob" as I read the story. The robber changed his mind, but I find the story disturbing and it is not clear to me how this is something we should be reading as we are preparing for advent.
As we are reading this book this year, I am wondering why I am using a book I am not completely comfortable with. I plan to look for a different book.
I wanted to read bible verses with each story to bring more of a lesson to my kids as they grow up!
Also I wanted something tangible to go with the story
so I made a tree and an ornament to go with each day reading!
This is one of my favorite Christmas traditions we have started a few years back!!!
It helps to keep us focused DAILY on what the season is really about!!!
check out the verses I picked for each days reading and the tree we made with the book!
Maybe you can make it a tradition in your home!
