Every year it’s a struggle to fit Jesus back into Christmas. With all the presents, parties, and pretend our family struggles to make sure that Jesus is still central to the season. We are excited about the Advent season and look forward to being more prepared for the next Christmas, however we still want Christmas Day to be special for our kids. We decided that reading the Christmas Story from the Bible sometime after the presents are opened would be a great way to celebrate and remember the “reason for the season.”
When our children were younger it was easy to read from my Bible. However as they have grown older and more interactive we have found that The Jesus Storybook Bible is a great way to share the story of Christmas (of course it doesn’t hurt that we read from it every night to our kids as part of our family devotions and bedtime routine).
To get a feel for the Jesus Storybook Bible check out the videos below. Each video is a simple reading and dramatization of a chapter from the Jesus Story Book Bible. You can also get The Jesus Storybook Bible on the Kindle !
