Have I mentioned that I love this time of year? :)
The Advent Storybook is a wonderful tradition in our home. Each year it gets pulled out after Thanksgiving, and my kids eagerly await the evening of December 1st when we break it open to read together. Reading one page a night from December 1st through Christmas Eve, we travel with Little Bear on his journey to Bethlehem and the birth of Jesus. Along the way, Little Bear meets other travelers and learns lessons about God's character and how much He loves us.
If there are any little children in your life this is a great addition to their Christmas traditions. One big lesson wrapped in one small story each night on the way to Christmas where we get the best present of all~that little baby in a manger.
