Jesus is Most Special
Our children are special to us, and Christmas is a special time for them, captivating them with its joy and wonder. What better time for parents to introduce their young children to the most special child ever born—the child who is also the Savior of the world and the King of all Kings?
Sally Michael helps parents to share the story of the birth of Jesus with their children and goes a step further by placing the Christmas story in the larger context of the Bible, including what comes before and after. She goes on to motivate children to teach this all-important story to others after they have learned it themselves. Through its large, full-color illustrated pages and its suggestions for accompanying songs and visuals, this book will help children to learn by heart the most special story ever told.
“The simplicity of this book mirrors the plainness of the biblical story. White space on the paper mimics the starkness of winter. Carol-lyrics waft beside the brief, deep Scriptures that inspired them. In these pages the Savior is clearly worshiped. As I read, his arrival touched me yet again.”
— Steve Estes, author of A Better December
