Christmas Review & Giveaway on November 20, 2016 - Christmas Love Letters from God

I was recently invited by ZonderKidz to review a new book in the Love Letters from God series by Glenys Nellist . . . this time, Christmas Love Letters from God. I'm happy to say it is a delight and I'm thrilled to be able to also make one available for giveaway!

Christmas Love Letters from God
Author - Glenys Nellist
Illustrator - Rachel Clowes
Publisher - Zonderkidz
Ages - 4-8

Favorite Features -
  • Each Bible account includes a Scripture reference for where you will find it in the Bible, "God's Perfect Promise" and a "Love Letter from God"
  • Colorful, detailed, wonderful illustrations throughout.
  • Ends with "My Gift to Jesus" where children may write, or have someone write for them, what they will give to Jesus as their love gift to Him.
Zonderkidz says; "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 accounts, beginning with Isaiah’s prophecy and ending with the visit of the wise men. Following each account, 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."

Once again, this new "Love Letters from God" book is sure to delight and provide wonderful opportunities for conversations with our grandchildren/children about what Christmas is really all about! As I mentioned above, I'm happy to say, not only did Zonderkidz send me one copy of Christmas Love Letters from God for me to review, but they are making another available for me to give away on November 20, 2016 (USA only)! If you live in the USA, are over the age of 18 and want to enter the giveaway for Christmas Love Letters from Godplease comment below to let me know your favorite part of the Christmas account - I love all of it, of course, but especially how the angels announced Jesus' birth to regular people - the shepherds!
