Prepare for the coming of Christmas by walking through the Advent season with a Catholic family!
Joan, Joe, Emmanuel, and Gianna are surprised when their parents suddenly begin bringing things into their home at the beginning of December. Evergreen branches, candles, and new foods keep appearing throughout the house. They are quickly told that this is part of "Advent" and that the family is preparing for the Christmas season.
The four children have a lot of questions about Advent. Join the kids as their family celebrates Advent as a time of prayerful waiting and expectation, full of fun traditions and treats!
Excerpts from the Scripture readings for Advent and Christmas are keyed to the main text throughout the book, helping little ones make connections between the story and what they hear at Mass throughout the Advent and beginning of the Christmas seasons.
When you’re done reading, you can bless your Advent wreath using the blessing at the back of the book.
