Joan, Joe, Emmanuel, and Gianna are taken aback when their parents begin bringing stuff into their home at the start of December. Throughout the house, evergreen branches, candles, and new meals keep emerging. They are swiftly informed that this is part of "Advent," and that the family is getting ready for the Christmas season.
The four children have many Advent-related inquiries. Join the kids as they celebrate Advent as a time of prayerful waiting and expectancy, complete with fun customs and treats!
Excerpts from the Advent and Christmas Scripture readings are tied to the main narrative throughout the book, assisting young children in making connections between the storey and what they hear at Mass during the Advent and Christmas seasons.
When you're finished reading, use the blessing at the back of the book to bless your Advent wreath.
