The Essential Advent and Christmas Handbook

Review: I purchased one for myself, and one as a gift, and I couldn't be more pleased and delighted with this book. It is a little confusing at first, because you have to jump around a lot. But once I got the hang of it, and used a few bookmarkers, it got a lot easier. I read from it every morning when I wake up, and every evening before I go to bed.

The Essential Advent and Christmas Handbook

More than what I hoped for!

Review: I started out wanting a book that would be used with my family on a daily advent basis guiding us to Christmas day. This book had everything including Christmas. My son wanted to find the book we used when he was younger and when I could not locate that book I order 2 copies of this one, one for me and one for him. He also was thrilled with the book!

A must for families!

Review: This is the first year that my family really integrated Advent into our Christmas celebration, and what a difference it made! This book was an invaluable resource for my husband and I, as we led the activities and prayers, and it was such a blessing to have our Christmas season become more a part of our daily lives.
