Christmas Love Letters From God: Bible Stories Review and Giveaway

Monday, November 14, 2016

Christmas Love Letters From God: Bible Stories by Glenys Nellist and illustrated by Rachel Clowes uses poetry and prose to tell the story of Christ's birth. The book includes seven stories beginning with Isaiah's prophesy of Christ's birth and ending with the visit from the three Wise Men. At the end of each story, is a letter to the child reading the story from God. There is a space in the letter to write the child's name. The letter is written as if God is speaking and helps the reader discover the wonder of Christmas. The age recommendation is children ages 4-8.


When we received the Christmas Love Letters From God: Bible Stories to review, I was a little concerned with the length of the text and I didn't think my three year old would enjoy it. The first time I read it to my kids - my daughter had no interest (but she's only 10-months) and my son's face was very serious. I was surprised when he picked it up the next day and asked me to read it to him again and since then he's asked for me to read it several times over. It has quickly become one of his favorite Christmas stories. The book shares the several short stories leading to the birth of Christ: Isaiah prophesying of Christ, Angel coming to Mary, Angel appearing to Joseph, Angel coming to the Shepherds, Wise Men visiting the Baby Jesus and etc. Each story also has a lift-the-flap love letter from God. The love letter from God shares God's love and shares how a part of the Christmas story can be applied in your own life. The love letters make the Christmas story more personal and helps to explain what we can learn from it. I think this is a book my children will continue to learn from and enjoy. The illustrations are also well done and kid-friendly.
