Christmas Love Letters from God {Christmas Book Review}

9780310748243-jpg

Written for children ages four to eight, Christmas Love Letters from God cleverly combines both prose and poetry as the story of Jesus’ birth unfolds. The book includes seven stories, beginning with Isaiah’s prophecy and ending with the visit of the wise men. Following each story, the child will find his or her own letter from God, folded into a small envelope attached to the page. Each letter begins with a space in which to write the child’s name, so each one can be specially addressed to the child.

Written as if God is speaking, each personalized message gives the young reader a sense of wonder as they discover anew the Christmas holiday and the birth of Jesus. A very special Bible verse, entitled God’s Perfect Promise, also accompanies each story and letter as God’s personal words of love, promise, and hope.

The story is illustrated beautifully in the form of a play with children acting out the parts of Mary, Joseph, the Wise Men, Shepherds, Animals, Angles and so forth.  I really appreciate the different Christmas pageant re-telling to the birth of Christ.  All the characters and important bits to remember from this story are covered.
