This is a fun, imaginative story about Santa learning about the gospel from one of his elves. It causes Santa to rethink the “naughty or nice” message he supports as he discovers that there is no one good but God alone. Recognizing his own depravity allows him to accept the free gift that Jesus gives.
2.Names Of Jesus Ornament Book by Dayspring
This is a beautiful book that is great for younger kids. Each page is short and sweet and has a pop out ornament that your little one can hang on the tree! We did this book when my son was three and he had each name of Jesus memorized by Christmas day! We have kept the ornaments and hung them on the tree again!
3.Heaven And Nature Sing Christmas Carol Ornament Book by Dayspring
Heaven and Nature Sing is similar to Names of Jesus, it is made by the same company. It also comes with beautiful pop out ornaments and is great for little ones. Each page has a different Christmas carol for the whole family to sing together and the meaning behind each song. This was fun for my two year old who didn’t fully understand what was going on, but had fun singing along!
