Jeanne Preski’s new children’s book, Praying for Christmas: Children’s Advent Wreath Devotions (published by AuthorHouse), offers a useful devotional text for encouraging children to participate in prayer during Advent.
Designed with children in mind, Praying for Christmas compiles daily prayers, short examples and Bible verses into a concise, easy-to-read format that families can utilize at each meal during Advent. Each component of Preski’s text, from the font size to the age-specific examples, is selected for the participation of children. The stories and messages have been simplified and given greater focus by the author for the benefit of younger children.
Praying for Christmas is meant to supplement the Advent wreath traditions which include the lighting of the candles as a reminder that Christ is the Light of the World and the significance of the four candles representing four weeks of Advent consisting of promise, light, love and hope.
A practical and engaging children’s book for Advent, Praying for Christmas will involve children with this mealtime tradition.
