Next week is already October? Where did the summer go?! That means it’s time to put away the pool toys and break out the holiday decorations. With that in mind, we will try to focus on some holiday themed books to get you ready for the season.
 
Are you someone that likes to get your holiday shopping done early? Add Creation to Christmas around The Jesse Tree to your list! We always love the gift of books and it’s one of our favorite gifts to give! As our kids get older, we are always looking for ways to teach Bible stories in a fun and easy to understand format. Author and illustrator Pamela Nelson delivers with this one.
 
The tradition of the Jesse Tree has been around for ages, telling the story of the Bible from Creation to the birth of Jesus. With her book Creation to Christmas around The Jesse Tree, Pamela combines all of these wonderful stories into one easy to read book. Each page shares a new Bible story for each day leading up to Christmas. As the title suggests, it starts with Creation with Adam and Eve and brings you all the way to the birth of Jesus. Along with each Bible story, Pamela references scripture and has ornament suggestions for making an advent tree. The stories are short and sweet, making them an easy addition to any bedtime routine in the season. The pictures are a mix of real pictures and art that bring each story to life.
