In this story we see 11 year old Ishtar grow up a LOT during his months of traveling. Great example for kids. Although this is the fourth book in the series and is an independent story, you will meet the characters Nathan, Decha, Jotham, Bartholomew and Tabitha from the other stories. I love the fact that the author intertwines some historical facts and traditions as well as food suggestions. Great addition to the series. No matter what day Advent starts you can know exactly when to start all the way up to 2081 by accessing the chart on the back page.
The first 3 advent books helped us to create space during advent to enjoy a special time of reading as a family (we sometimes needed "catch up" nights to make up the readings we missed). The kids LOVED the cliff-hanger endings. As a parent, I like the way the author ties the readings with Scripture or challenges us to think about our own walk with God. These books have been a wonderful way to help us as we prepare to celebrate our Savior's birth!
The characters are expertly woven together from one book to the next and it's wonderful to hear our kids recognize scenarios from the previous book-a whole year later!
We highly recommend this and the other 3 books in this series!
This is a story for young and old. Everyone will love it.
Most chapters end in a cliffhanger, which keeps us coming back night after night.
I sure hope he writes more. We waited a LONG time for this one.
