An invitation for children to look back, look around and look ahead for the ways God comes to us in Advent and at Christmas
Look! A Child’s Guide to Advent and Christmas teaches about Advent liturgical traditions, the Jesse tree and scripture stories and celebrates the season as a time for families to give to others through food, clothes and toy donations, caring for neighbors or serving at soup kitchens.
This book reassures children of the presence of God in all times and places and invites them to become part of the holy work of making Christ present in the world.
“Seldom comes a book that evokes the response of all our senses. From the flickering flames of glowing lamplight to the aroma of baking cookies Alary invites you into the waiting, wondering, and life-giving story. Winter branches shiver in the cold. The reader shivers with anticipation. The Light comes and Love is born.”
—Roger Hutchison, author of My Favorite Color is Blue. Sometimes.
