After many years of writing in her prayer journal, missionary Sarah Young decided to listen to God with pen in hand, writing down what she believed He was saying to her through Scripture. Others were blessed as she shared her writings, until people all over the world were using her devotionals.  They are written from Jesus’ point of view, thus the title Jesus Calling.  It is Sarah’s fervent prayer that our Savior may bless readers, and now young readers, with His presence and His peace in ever deeper measure. 392 pages, hardcover (Item #85601)

After many years of writing in her prayer journal, missionary Sarah Young decided to listen to God with pen in hand, writing down whatever she believed He was saying to her.

The Legend of St. Nicholas
by Dandi Daley Mackall.

This gentle Christmas book introduces the original St. Nicholas and tells why we give gifts in remembrance of the greatest gift of all. Nick is much more interested in contemplating his presents under the tree than he is in being dragged along for last-minute shopping with his dad. But while his father’s off shopping, Nick hears someone say his name---it’s a mall Santa, telling a group of children a story about the original St. Nick. In the long-ago story, a wealthy boy named Nicholas is moved by the sight of poor children and decides to use his family’s wealth to help the needy, starting anonymously with his less-fortunate friends. Young Nick is inspired as at last he---and young readers---understand the joy of giving. A note at the end explains how the story of this early Nicholas might have grown into the Santa Claus of legend.

Bright, festive artwork accompanies the text of master storyteller Dandi Mackall, who reminds children that God gave us the greatest gift ever given.
Hardcover, 32 pages. (Item #94715)

Photo:Christmas Night, Fair and Bright NEW!
Christmas Night
With simple words and rhyme scheme ideal for children ages 4 to 7, Julie Stiegemeyer recreates the sights and sounds of the first Christmas.
Christmas Night emphasizes the two natures of Christ -- His abject humility and His ultimate divinity. With each verse, Jesus' perfect life and death on our behalf is underscored.

Most of Christmas Night takes place in the humble stall as a paradoxical setting for the birth of the King of kings and the Lord of lords: "Jesus has no kingly hall. Jesus has no fortress tall. Home becomes a cattle stall for Jesus, born for us. So sequined stars become a crown, night, a robe to wrap around, God's own Son to earth came down, He's Jesus, born for us."

Christmas Night predictably recounts the events of that first Christmas, but it also includes the flight to Egypt, an event not typically found in children's Christmas books. This additional information helps children begin to see Jesus' birth as the beginning of a life story that will culminate in His ascension into heaven.

The illustrations in this book are in keeping with the standard for this age group—brightly colored images that may have less detail than those for older children but that capture the drama and reality of the events. The result is an informative and engaging book that will teach young readers about the birth of their Savior from sin. (Item #84637)

Preschool children and their parents are encouraged by the reminder to focus their Christmas celebration on Christ and His gifts to us. At the conclusion of the book, children are invited to respond to Jesus in prayer, song, and service. Makes a great book to read as a family before opening gifts on Christmas morning!  (Item #80123)

Elf Help Book
Written by Ted O'Neal
Illustrated by R.W. Alley

Kids don't need to be told that Christmas "counts." They are generally tuned in to the excitement and anticipation!

This little illustrated book communicates a message about making Christmas count in all its facets and flavors; it is a book about recognizing the deepest "reasons for the season.

Wonderworker: The True Story of How St. Nicholas Became Santa Claus
by Vincent A. Yzermans
Discover the magic inherent in the true story of a man who overcame relative obscurity in a small Mediterranean city and became a cultural icon the world over. In Wonderworker: The True Story of How St. Nicholas Became Santa Claus, Msgr. Vincent Yzermans writes a book for his grandnephew that explains the evolution of St. Nicholas into Santa Claus.

Nicholas quickly made a name for himself with his eloquence, intelligence and generosity. Recognized as a miracle worker during his lifetime, he became known for helping children in need, mothers in labor, and sailors as they traversed the Mediterranean. The modern incarnation of Santa Claus, however, became popularized in the mid-19th century through a poem by Clement Clark Moore called "A Visit from St. Nicholas"-better known as "The Night Before Christmas"-in the Frank Church editorial, "Yes, Virginia, There Is a Santa Claus," and in the artwork of Thomas Nast and Haddon Sundblom.

This book will appeal to children from the age of nine to ninety-nine. Anyone who celebrates Christmas-regardless of whether or not they still believe in the existence of a Santa Claus who brings gifts to children around the world-will welcome this informative and eloquent explanation of the true story behind how a humble bishop from Asia became "jolly old St. Nick." 64 pages.

The Miracle of Saint Nicholas
It was the day before Christmas in a small Russian village. Alexi's babushka was telling him what Christmas was like when she was a girl - before the soldiers came. "Our church was as crowded as a pod full of peas. Candles made the church as bright as the sunniest day. Watching over us was the blessed icon of St. Nicholas." Alexi had many questions, including, "Why can't we celebrate Christmas tomorrow in St. Nicholas?" Babushka sadly replied that it would take a miracle after sixty years. Well, Alexi had heard enough. If there truly was such a thing as a miracle, why couldn't one happen here? And so unfolds a story which poignantly reveals how, though quiet and hidden, faith and hope can not be suppressed - by soldiers or by time. Beautifully illustrated with original four-color paintings on every page. A perfect Christmas present. Hardcover. 32 pages. (Item #81304)

83985.jpg (9721 bytes) Saint Nicholas: The Real Story of the Christmas Legend
Many parents and teachers struggle with how to approach the Saint Nicholas/Santa Claus dilemma. Many deal with this by telling children that the legends surrounding Santa Claus are based on a real, historical figure named Nicholas, a Christian bishop known for his generosity.

This picture book presents a shortened, somewhat fictionalized version of the life of Saint Nicholas, explaining that Nicholas was a servant of God and that, through him, God’s love was reflected to others. The story touches on the ministry of Nicholas and his generous gift of a dowry to three young girls as a response to God's love in Jesus. And it brings application to our own lives as we, too, respond with grateful hearts to God’s great gift of love to us.

Combining museum-quality artwork and family friendly language, this book clearly articulates how God showered His love upon us through Christ and helps children see that our own gift-giving is a grateful response to the sacrificial gift of God’s Son. 32 pages. (Item #88116)

Build Your Own Bethlehem: A Nativity Scene and Activity Book for Christmastime
by Gertrud Mueller Nelson with Peter Mazar
Here are all the characters—and then some—for building your own nativity scene! Each figure is yours to pop loose and set up as the days of Christmas unfold. There’s the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph. There’s the stable with scampering mice and cooing doves that sit in the rafters. There’s the ox and ass and a flock of sheep accompanied by shepherds and their faithful dog. There’s an angel, of course, and a star. Epiphany’s three holy kings, Caspar, Melchior and Balthasar, are here too. And there are surprises—the gospel’s “senior citizens,” Anna and Simeon, who wait 40 days to meet their newborn Lord.

This beautiful, full-color activity book (the pop-out figures are found inside) suggests eight occasions, from Christmas until Candlemas—a full 40 days—for using the figures to tell a portion of the nativity gospels, like a puppet theater! The art of Gertrud Mueller Nelson and the sturdy pop-out figures truly bring the Christmas stories to life.

Building your own Bethlehem is a wonderful way to keep the spirit of Christmas alive well into the new year—perfect for home or classroom, perfect for every age.

Celebrate these Advent and Christmas stories at home or in the classroom:
• The annunciation to Mary
• The birth of Jesus
• The coming of the shepherds
• The flight into Egypt
• The visit of the Magi
• And more!
8 1/2 X 11, 40 pages.
