We are excited to announce that we will be kicking off our Christmas Unit Study cooperative on our Facebook page on Monday, November 28th! We are busy planning the December fun and looking forward to the special days ahead. Watch your email for more details on the Christmas co-op!
Christmas is the focus of our Fantastic Friday giveaway today, and Amanda has hand-picked this one. There are two Christmas prize packages, each one includes the Christmas Unit Study AND an autographed holiday picture book. The Little Shepherd's Christmas, written and beautifully illustrated by Carol Heyer, tells the tale of a young shepherd as he discovers the newborn Savior. Amanda and her family have enjoyed Carol's work over the years, and this new title will make a terrific addition to your family library.

Christmas: a special time of rejoicing as we celebrate the birth of the Son of God, the Messiah. Learn what the world was like at the time of Christ's birth. Use this study to help your children understand the significance that the coming Savior had for so many people. Read about the prophecies that were fulfilled by His birth, and begin to clearly see God's hand in history since the very beginning of time. When so many material desires threaten to obscure the true meaning of Christmas, this study will help bring back into focus how the birth of a tiny baby changed the whole world!
"This is Reuel's big chance to prove that he can tend sheep just as well as his older brothers. All he has to do is keep a watchful eye on his little flock. But distracted by his brothers' teasing, he looks away just long enough for a little lamb to wander. Following a frantic search, Reuel finds his missing charge . . . and finds himself in the midst of the biggest announcement ever made. The Christ Child has been born, and Reuel is one of the first chosen to hear the news! After racing through the streets of Bethlehem, his misstep becomes a blessing when he encounters the Baby who will one day become the Shepherd of Men.To help you get ready for the co-op . . . we have the Christmas Unit Study on sale for just $6 through 11/25/11.
This tale of the first Christmas, told from the viewpoint of a little boy to whom young readers will relate, is illustrated with gorgeous, detailed paintings by Carol Heyer. Her art showcase the sweetness of the child shepherd and the reverence of the story. Here is a book that both entertains and informs without ever straying from the meaning of the holiday."
