“A delightful little book to use in family worship anytime of the year, but especially during the Christmas season. The simple, colorful illustrations effectively communicate the main idea of each lesson. This is the kind of biblically–sound, theologically–rich, Christ–centered material we’ve come to expect from Shepherd Press. I am envisioning the joy of future December nights reading Why Christmas? with my grandchildren gathered around me.”See All

“In a winsome, child–and parent–friendly manner Why Christmas? takes families on a journey through Old and New Testament texts about the Savior’s coming while introducing Christmas carols that “sing” truths. Moms and Dads will welcome the suggestions for discussion, and children will delight in memorizing Luke’s Christmas story. Highly recommended!”See All

“God coming to earth as a baby?! That’s as incredible as fitting an oil tanker into a bath tub or a 747 into your garage. No, it’s even more astounding! Christmas may be God’s greatest miracle of all and every boy and girl should be able to know why. And Why Christmas? provides an exceptional opportunity for parents and Christian leaders to lead their children through a rich and wonderful discovery behind the miracle of Christmas – I highly recommend this brilliant little book for every child!”See All

Why do we celebrate Christmas? Most children do not know the true answer to that question or why God sent Jesus to live on earth. Why Christmas? is a helpful daily devotional with Scripture reading, memory verse, Christmas carol and questions to direct your child’s heart towards God. The readings, which begin on the first day of December, are Biblical, short, and effective. Colorful illustrations illuminate the events of the incarnation. This book will provide parents with the assistance they desire for leading their child to the Christ of Christmas.
A companion volume, Why Easter?, is also available to assist parents in teaching their children about Jesus’ death and resurrection.
