Countdown to Christmas 24 Days of The Jesse Tree Tradition by Theresa Seidlitz, edited by Marguerite Hartill and illustrated by Katia Lara tells a story during the weeks before Christmas, Christian families prepare to remember the birth of Jesus. As they do, family traditions fall into place, and children get very excited about the celebration to come. Countdown to Christmas: 24 Days of the Jesse Tree Tradition allows your family to take time to know the people in the Bible and to see their connection to Jesus. To begin the tradition, set up a small 2' - 3' high tree in your home and read one story every night in the days before Christmas. After each story, hang an ornament to remember the biblical figures, starting with Adam and Eve and ending with Jesus. Night by night, children learn that Jesus had a family just like they do. This beautifully illustrated book will help you establish a cherished holiday tradition with your own family.
Countdown to Christmas: 24 Days of the Jesse Tree Tradition includes a complete set of Jesse Tree ornaments on heavy card stock paper. Each ornament features a color illustration to match individual stories in the book. Punch out the corresponding ornament after you read each story, add a ribbon or string, and hang it on a small Christmas tree.
My Opinion: I like this book and I feel it is a great idea to bring faith in to the life of young child as there are a lot of kids out there today who have never heard the word or been to church know what faith is or happy. I myself learned something I forgot about when I was young I went to Sunday school and church and pray every night when I go to bed.
