December 14

First, before I share the Advent book my boys unwrapped today, I need to share this book:

Snowflakes Fall
by Patricia MacLachlan
illustrated by Steven Kellogg

Steven Kellogg, who lived in the Newtown, CT area for thirty-five years, was deeply saddened for his community after the tragic school shooting one year ago today. In tribute, he collaborated with Patricia MacLachlan to create a book that "celebrates the laughter, the playful high spirits, and the uniqueness of the children of Sandy Hook and of children everywhere." There is such comforting beauty in using snowflakes as a metaphor for each unique life.

Now for the Advent book:

illustrated by Fiona French
text from Revised Standard Version of the Holy Bible, Catholic Edition

Gloriously illustrated with stained-glass inspired artwork, this visual rendition of the Christmas Story is a true celebration of the reason for the season.

  1. I saw 'When Snowflakes fall" somewhere on PPBF with the trailer. I was impressed. Beautiful! :)
