Unwrapping Christmas by Ann Voskamp

Book Description:  Based on the overwhelming success of The Greatest Gift, Ann Voskamp has expanded her presentation of the timeless Advent tradition of the Jesse Tree so families can celebrate together. Each day, families can read the provided Scripture passage (in connection with the original book), engage with a specially written devotion to help children of all ages understand the Advent theme for the day, and participate in suggested activities to apply the theme.

This special edition is beautifully illustrated. It can serve as a precious guide to help recapture the sacredness of the Advent season and to help the entire family understand and celebrate the epic pageantry of humankind from Adam to the Messiah.

My Thoughts:  Yay!  Another Christmas book.  I wasn't quite sure what to expect when I picked this book so I was amazed when I received it.  It's a beautiful book...hardback, lovely illustrations and such a nice cover!  
This is one book that will be on our living room table for the month of Christmas.
Each day there is a scripture passage/devotion to be read and then there are activities to do as a family.  A great way for a family to connect at the onset/Advent of the season.  
As more and families are trying not to get lost in the busyness and materialism of the Christmas season...this book is a great way to bring your family into the "worship" of the season and why we celebrate the birth of the Savior.
I love the title, Unwrapping the Greatest Gift:  A Celebration of Christmas, because this is exactly what the book brings to each member of the family...the greatest gift of all!

***From the Back Cover

Unwrap the greatest Gift with your family this Advent season!
Person by person, story by story, retrace the lineage of Jesus. Fall in love with Him all over again as you experience God’s plan of salvation for us—from the Garden of Eden to the manger and beyond.

With vivid, full-color illustrations, downloadable ornaments, and moving scenes from the Bible, this book is a gift your whole family can unwrap each day leading up to Christmas.

Each devotion includes the following:

  • Scripture readings to go along with each story

Celebrate the best love story of all time with your family!
This book would be a great Christmas card to give to a family before the season begins.
