Description

Superb illustrations by Catalina Echeverri and faithful, Bible-centred story-telling by Alison Mitchell combine to make this a book that both parents and children will love.

A long, long time ago – so long that it’s hard to imagine – God promised a new King. He wasn’t any ordinary king, like the ones we see on TV or in books. He would be different. He would be a new King; a rescuing King; a forever King!

This book helps pre-school children discover exactly how God kept His Christmas Promise.

For older children, there is an Advent Calendar including 32-page book of family devotionals

Catalina Echeverri's original and colourful illustrations add warmth and vigour to a retelling of the greatest of stories. With a big emphasis on who that baby was and what he came to do, this book puts the manger into the context of the whole Bible story. In so doing it avoids the twee and merely sentimental without any loss of charm. A great gift for a young child at Christmas.

Hooray for a retelling of the Christmas story for children that is both biblically faithful and tremendously engaging! “The Christmas Promise” combines a clear and imaginative storytelling style with wonderfully rich and vivid illustrations. It lends itself to reading and re-reading. The wonder of the Christmas story flies off its pages!

The Christmas Promise is an engaging blend of the Christmas accounts from the Gospels of Matthew and Luke. It helpfully reinforces a clear picture of Jesus as the rescuing King. Captivating illustrations give children lots to observe and convey the emotional elements of the story. The book could be used by parents or teachers as a springboard to discussions about why Jesus came into our world, and the Scripture references provided at the end are useful. I look forward to seeing more books from this author/illustrator team.

“Enjoyable and Engaging”

I bought this book for my 3 year old as we looked forward to Christmas. She really enjoyed listening to the story and re-telling it. I enjoyed reading it to her as it was a slightly different perspective to the 'normal' children's story of the nativity. The illustrations are colourful and add to the story.

“Excellent writing and gorgeous illustrations”

(Review written for 'The Christmas Promise (Paperback)')

I love the illustrations in this book which make it feel very special. I think this would be a gentle introduction to the Christmas story for a non-Christian, whilst also being quite different from most other nativity books (the focus being on who Jesus is instead of the usual "no place at the inn"). I love the way it picks up themes from the Old Testament - so there's lots in here for a Christian to pick up on and point out to their children. I would say it's a great book to give as a gift to anyone with children aged about 3-8.
