About the book: Draw closer to the Savior as you set aside a few minutes each day to celebrate the season with your family using this inspiring, fun-filled countdown to Christmas as your guide. From Christmas songs to holiday stories to activities for old and young alike, this compilation of Christ-centered ideas is designed with one goal in mind: to bring families closer together and closer to Christ this holiday season. Whether you're taking a quick moment to connect or are engaging in a longer opportunity to create memories, the stories, recipes, activities, and music on these pages are just the beginning of faith-affirming togetherness for families of all ages and stages during the Christmas season.
My review: I LOVE this book! I love the idea of having this be kind of a like a living advent calendar during the month of December. There are so many great ideas of things you can do with your family to create new traditions, serve others, and have a great time together.
Each day leading up to Christmas has it's own section. In the section there's a story you can read, with an activity you can do. I love that the author has included 3 different activities for each day, you can really tailor each and every one of these ideas to fit the individual needs of your family so easily. I love that!
Each day also contains a journal prompt. I love the way there are several years included on the journal box, that way you can look back and see how everyone answered the question each year individually.
And there's also a Christmas song or hymn listed for every day. I love that you could sing them together, or if your family doesn't sing, like mine, you could simply find a version to play either on YouTube or searching on Google.
I can't wait for December to start, so we can try out this fun book!
I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
