A Christmas Prayer: Christmas Book

Today's book is A Christmas Prayer by Amy Parker. This is a Christmas book perfect for your littlest ones.

Summary: A little child talks about how every aspect of the nativity story is a gift from God.  From Gabriel to baby Jesus, they are each a precious Christmas gift to us from God.

The book has simple text with the repeating phrase, "Thank you, God, for __________ Your precious Christmas gift". My little ones were able to repeat that phrase after a couple of pages. I appreciated that this book allowed us to talk about how each of the characters in our nativity set were real and each were a gift from God that helped tell the story of the best gift of all-- Jesus.

After reading this book we pulled out our Nativity Sensory Box that we made last year. As the girls searched for the pieces, we reviewed what the book said about that person.

"Thank You, God, for Jesus,
Your one and only Son.
A Savior sent to save the world!
Yes, Christmas had begun!"

I love the idea of having so many different Christmas books. I need to work on gathering some for next year.

I also absolutely love the idea of a nativity sensory box. What a great idea.
