Christmas books can be great, yet some can be horrendous, with a little imagination and a complete lack of focus on the reason for the Christmas celebration. Thankfully B&H kids have provided a wonderful book which is not only entertaining but encapsulate the account of the first Advent of our Messiah, Jesus. This work entitled Merry Christmas, is written by Sally Lloyd Jones author of The award-winning Jesus storybook Bible. Merry Christmas is a board book for ages 2 and up and takes the reader on a journey through Jesus’s first Advent while demonstrating how the narrative should be celebrated in the modern day. Furthermore this work shows the love that God has shown his people by sending a savior to save his people from their sin.
With regard to the illustration, the pictures are wonderfully and vividly vibrant. And draw in the reader in a way that most words cannot. Children will be captivated by these images and will be focused on what is presented in each frame.
In the end, Sally lloyd-jones has truly outdone herself in this book, and it is one that all children should read so that they may understand the why and how of the first Advent of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
