New! The Christmas List
by Leigh, Susan K.
Age(s): 6 - 9
Grade(s): 1 - 4
Emily is thoughtful as she considers what she wants on her Christmas list. Jacob, her brother, is done with his list and everyone in the family is asking about hers. But Emily has a lot to think about.
When Emily is through thinking, she asks for the most precious gift of all. A gift that will last forever. A gift that is also well worth sharing.
Many children make Christmas lists. In this book children learn that a wish list of gifts is not as important as Jesus' list of all the names of God's children, the Book of Life. (Luke 10:20; Revelation 3:5)
The Christmas List helps children take their focus off material gain by reminding them that the meaning of Christmas is that God sent His Son to be our Savior from sin and to reconcile us with our heavenly Father.
