Celebrating a Christ-Centered Christmas (Children's Edition)

Expected to ship in late November. Reserve your copy today and start a new family tradition this holiday season.

Discover how each figure of the Nativity can lead your family closer to Christ this Christmas season. This children's edition of Celebrating a Christ-Centered Christmas will guide you through seven meaningful traditions inspired by the Nativity setting. These simple experiences are not meant to add more to an already crowded holiday season but to offer something different. They will give your family an opportunity to escape from the frantic bustle of the Christmas season and spend time reflecting on the baby Jesus and the miracle of His birth.

The Mismatched Nativity

Joshua has a problem. His family has just moved across the country to a new home. It's nearly Christmas, he's lonely and homesick, and he wonders if he'll ever make any new friends. A caring Primary teacher notices, though. Soon Josh and the rest of his Primary class are caught up in the Christmas spirit. They learn what the story of the Nativity has to do with all of us, especially those of us who feel lonely or homesick at Christmas.

The Little Lamb from Bethlehem

The Little Lamb from Bethlehem tells the story of Jesus's miraculous birth from the perspective of one of the lambs in the stable on that sacred night. The lamb loved baby Jesus, and as they both grew, the lamb promised to share Christ's story with everyone. Make Christmas more meaningful as you use this little plush lamb to learn of the Savior, serve others, and celebrate the true spirit of the season with this new Christ-centered Christmas tradition!

Ming's Christmas Wishes

Ming wishes for three things at Christmas. First, to sing in the school Christmas choir. Second, to have a Christmas tree like the one in the department store window. And third, to feel she belongs somewhere. Ming doesn't seem to fit in anywhere: she's not quite American enough at school, not quite Chinese enough at home.

Seeing his daughter's unhappiness, Pop takes her into the mountains to visit a wise old friend. Always happy for an adventure with her kind father, Ming hopes to persuade Pop to bring home a mountain pine to be their Christmas tree. But he has something else in mind, something that will help Ming draw strength from nature, from their Chinese heritage, and from deep and enduring family ties.
