Great Advent Books


The Christmas season is fast approaching and I wanted to share with you about a series of books that my family has enjoyed reading during the holiday season. They recently were advertised in the MomSense magazine from MOPS.

The books are designed to be read aloud to your children during the Advent season. The first book is called Jotham's Journey. Each day during Advent you read to your family a chapter about Jotham. As Jotham travels he has a lot of adventures and meets the characters who make up the next two books in the series, Bartholomew and Tabitha. Each book is meant to last the entire advent season, ending on Christmas Day when their adventures bring them to a stable in Bethlehem.

There is no need to buy all three books at once. The series begins with Jotham, next year your family would follow Bartholomew and the third year read about Tabitha during advent. Then you can start all over again with Jotham.

We were introduced to these books about 8 years ago and we still enjoy reading them each holiday season. It is a great way to remember what the season is really about. Each chapter only takes about 10-15 minutes to read, so they work well in the evening.

You can find the books at Christian Book Distributors or a local Christian book store.

Blessings to all,
