Who Was There Christmas Night?
Jenn reviews the book, Who Was There Christmas Night?, which is geared towards preschoolers and tells us about this unique book. She shares about one of the most unique aspects of the Christmas book for preschoolers: the action wheel that turns, allowing young children a hands-on aspect to their story time.
The Gift of the Christmas Cookie
The Gift of the Christmas Cookie by Dandi Daley was reviewed by Sarah. She shared her disappointment that the book didn’t share as much of the true Christmas story as she anticipated from the description. She shares more about the story itself being a family-friendly, heart-warming story, if not decided Christian—something readers will want to be aware of before purchasing. The cookie recipe would make a start for a fun family activity with children in the 5–10 year range, though.
The Berenstein Bears’ Christmas Tree
A classic story family for children, The Berenstein Bears—and their books—have been around for many years and cover a variety topics. It was no surprise then that Prerna was able to review a Christmas-themed book. The book is geared for older preschool children and young readers through age 7 or so. With classic children’s rhymes, The Berenstein Bears’ Christmas Tree seems like a fun and inspirational way to spend a cool day indoors during the holidays.
The Beginner’s Bible: Come and See Baby Jesus
Prerna reviews this children’s Beginner Bible for us too and, while she is concerned the price may be a little on the high side, she has a lot of postive things to say as well. This preschool Bible has 50 lift-up flaps, making it another great interactive book for little ones. Being a board-book, it also is more durable than a regular children’s book and is a good option for toddlers and preschoolers.
The Tiny Baby Jesus
Craftgreenmama explains to us that The Tiny Baby Jesus begins as a Christmas book, but goes on to connect the birth of Christ with His life and work as an adult. She does warn that parental conversation would probably be helpful in making some of the connections with younger children. See for yourself the full-length review of The Tiny Baby Jesus by Dandi Daley Mackall.
