Are you looking for a book for your tiny tots this Advent season? The Christmas Promise by Alison Mitchell and Catalina Echeverri might be just what you're looking for!
While the vibrant colors and wonderful illustrations are sure to catch the eyes of your little ones, the message of this book is what stands out the most. The narrative is engaging, taking you from the centuries prior to Jesus' birth when all creation was awaiting a King. Your kids are then shown various scenes of the days leading up to and shortly after the birth of Jesus. It's quick, but it will help your really young kiddos get familiar with the birth narrative of Jesus.
The last page is my favorite. When most Christmas books for children end off with a baby in a manger, The Christmas Promise ends by pointing far beyond that baby boy in the manger. While Jesus certainly was a baby who grew up to be a man on earth, The Christmas Promise reminds us that He would one day become the "New King, Rescuing King, Forever King".
If you want to begin teaching your children about the wonderful birth narrative of Jesus this Advent season, The Christmas Promise is a great place to start. There's also a The Christmas Promise Coloring and Activity Book for kids who love to get their hands on some crayons and crafts!
