Description


Re-usable Advent devotionals for children can be hard to find as the number of days in Advent changes based on the year. This book was put together to accommodate every year of Advent with enough readings for even the longest years. There is an original piece of artwork for every scripture to help engage the youngest in their faith formation. There is also a suggested full scripture text to read as you begin to teach young children how to find and read scripture on their own; over the years, it will get easier and easier. Every picture also acts as a 'look and find' and contains the hidden words: hope, peace, joy, and love. A short devotional also appears for every picture to help start conversation in your family. This is the perfect book to give as an Advent gift to start new traditions that focus on faith formation throughout the Advent season. It is also a great companion for churches to provide for their families to help encourage faith formation at home.
