great advent reading

Two books, both equally fabulous reads...

"Jothan's Journey; A story for Advent"
... and "The Jesse Tree"

We're coming to the end of our Advent reading this year, thoroughly enjoying these two fantastic and most enjoyable books.

Filled with adventure and intrigue,
"Jotham's Journey" will leave you on the edge of your seat!

Heartwarming and interesting, the "Jesse tree" book is equally wonderful, both working simultaneously in biblical parallels, making history AND the story of salvation literally come to life!

As I read from both books each day, and we place our symbols on our own Jesse Tree soon afterward, I've been finding the children grabbing the books later on to map out the Jesse tree carvings, and browse through an atlas to find the cities noted within the stories.

We just LOVE them both, and I personally cannot recommend them highly enough to all, even adults will find them of interest in a simple way.
