Serenity is too young to really understand what’s going on at Christmas time – what any of it means – but she’s old enough to enjoy music and books, and this year we’re instituting a new tradition for our little family.
We are huge readers in our family, and thanks to Zonderkidz, we are starting our new tradition of celebrating Christmas with a new book with a truly wonderful title.
Jesus, Me, and My Christmas Tree is a sweet story that teaches children about the meaning behind the various elements of the Christmas tree, from the star on top, to the ornaments and twinkly lights. This is a very cute book, and very pretty. I love the easy rhythm of the story (which rhymes), the simplicity and clarity of the story itself, and the adorable pictures. Bonus – the little girl in the story is a curly redhead, just like Serenity! ?
Crystal Bowman has written lots of cute books for children, and Claudine Gevry is a phenomenal illustrator who has worked on numerous artistic projects. After reading this book, I’ll be looking to collect some of their other titles for our family’s collection.
