Bible verses and Jesus Calling devotions are on every spread of this beautifully illustrated book with foil and glitter on the cover.
Teach your children the story of Christmas . . . starting from creation! In Jesus Calling®: The Story of Christmas, children will discover that God always had a plan for Christmas.

Christ was chosen before the world was made.
—1 Peter 1:20
The Christmas story began long, long ago. Before the angel Gabriel told Mary she would have God's Son. Before the shepherds saw the angels and before the wise men saw the star.
Even before the sun and the moon shone for the first time, before the first cows ever moooed and the first monkeys ever climbed! Before Adam and Even took their first walk in the Garden of Eden, God had a plan for Christmas.
From the beginning of time, God had a plan to save his children. That plan was Jesus!

Curl up with your little ones around the Christmas tree with Jesus Calling®: The Story of Christmas.

My thoughts: JESUS CALLING: The Story of Christmas is the latest in the series, and especially designed for children. This would be a great gift - story - for your favorite preschooler or early elementary student. The illustrations are lovely, and will hold the children's attention.
I really like how Bible verses are quoted in the story. It starts at when the angel appears to Mary and talks about her cousin Elizabeth, and Joseph, and talks about the small family fleeing to Egypt and then their return to Israel and what His ministry was like on earth.
There is also a lovely takeaway and a "letter from Jesus." 
I highly recommend this book for a great addition to your Christmas. 
I was given a copy free. All opinions are my own.
