Of course, we need a special edition of the blog for Christmas. Today I want to recommend two of my favorite Christmas books. They are picture books, and they are perfect for families. Hopefully the will help you remember Christ all year.
A Night Without Darkness: A Nephite Christmas Story by Timothy Robinson
This book has been in my house ever since I can remember. It is the story of the people in ancient America who witnessed the signs of Jesus Christ's birth as foretold by prophets. Although the main characters portrayed are fictitious, the story brings to life the plight of believers in Book of Mormon times. They watched for the sign of Christ's coming, much as we watch for his second coming.
The Tale of Three Trees: A Traditional Folktale by Angela Elwell Hunt
A dear friend gave this book to us a few years ago around Christmas time. All I can say is, it is beautiful. It will lead you to ponder the life of Christ, and love him more. It will help you see that everything happens for a reason.
Be sure to share your favorite Christmas books in the comments!
"This is a season of A season of A wonderful time when we acknowledge that our Almighty God sent His Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, to redeem the world! To redeem us!
