Christmas is a time that is busy and bustling with so many activities it can be difficult to find time to focus on the real meaning of Christmas. If we do find a few minutes, it can be even more daunting to know where to begin teaching our children the life-changing truths about Jesus Christ’s birth. Mukkove Johnson recognized this challenge and authored the children’s book Christmas is About Jesus: An Advent Devotional as a tool to help meet this need.
I love this book. I love the idea behind the book and the purpose for the book. I think Mukkove did an excellent job putting together a resource to bring parents and children together each day during the month of December to share one important truth about Jesus Christ. Each day’s readings are brief, to hold the attention of even small children. The book easily relates items that we see or associate with Christmas and then shares a Biblical truth that kids can easily remember and think about each time they see that item during the season. Who knew that Christmas ornaments, snow, and caroling could be used as tools to teach children about the purpose of the coming of Jesus Christ?
I am so looking forward to sharing this book together with my children this coming December and if you have children or grandchildren, I highly recommend this book. Thank you Mukkove for the opportunity to review your book!
