It's Time for Christmas Reading & Listening

It's not too late to spend some time enjoying Christmas reading (and listening) with your family!

idea-a-day! Activities, service projects, crafts, recipes, worship plans, stories, and more.

Silent Night, Holy Night: The Story Behind Our Favorite Christmas Carol, (Traditions of Faith from Around the World), by Myrna Strasser. Published by Zonderkidz.

Telling how the song quickly spread throughout Germany, this tenderly illustrated tale will be a family favorite year after year. Ages 4 to 8.

From Heaven Above: A Christmas Carol, by Martin Luther. Published by Concordia Publishing House.

The favorite Christmas hymns by Martin Luther, "From Heaven Above to Earth I Come" and "Welcome to Earth, O Noble Guest," serve as the text for this Christmas picture book.

A melodic book, it captivates children with the drama and the excitement of this amazing night. Adults, also, will welcome the opportunity to tell of the birth of Christ, the fulfillment of God's Promise to send His people a Savior. Recommended for ages 6 to 9.
