Weekend Review: It's beginning to look a lot like...

Christmas? Is it too early for that? They ARE selling Christmas lights at Target. Probably trying to suck us in to spending, spending, and more spending!!
A Christmas PrayerA Christmas Prayer by Amy Parker is a refreshing change to the sometimes over commercialized holiday season. In A Christmas Prayer, a young child says thank you to God for each of the Christmas gifts: the angel Gabriel, Mary, Joseph, the donkey, the manger, the shepards, the bright star, and Jesus, the perfect Christmas gift. The rhyming verse in the story follows a repetative, predictable pattern.
I found A Christmas Prayer to be a very sweet book with a simple but strong message. I can't wait to share this book with my boys to introduce them to the important figures in the Christmas story during Advent. The book is available in a board book with a padded hard cover. There is something soft and sweet about the cover, the rhyme, and the illustrations. The book practically begs to be read as a bedtime prayer!
Don't miss this book this holiday season.
While this complimentary book was provided for review by Thomas Nelson Publishers, no other compensation was given. All remarks are my personal and honest opinions.
