I’m so excited to tell you about this year’s calendar. As always, I always want to improve it, year on year, and this year you’ve got:
* two sizes of stickers which tell the story, as Helen, the artist and I agreed it would be fab to have stickers of the main characters which really transformed the picture when you put them on.
* a mini-story book which is fully illustrated, 16 pages of glorious pictures and actual Bible text, with the stories from Matthew and Luke’s gospel used directly from the Bible, with a few verses for each day. The verses you read match the sticker you add 🙂 and the Bible text is from the New International Readers Version, which is perfect for emerging readers and those who find the text hard work.
* a POSTER version, which is a giant A1, wide enough to stick up on a door – if you like to do Christmas BIG, this is for you!
And it’s all HALF PRICE until the end of August, with a FREE gift of a Christmas Bible Story Devotional book for the first 50 people who pre-order.
Pre-ordering also helps me know how many to print, so I can try not to run out, so please do put your order in early. This is the cheapest the calendars will be, except if you’d like to buy 100 copies or more, in which case there’s already a special price for you here and an extra gift of 2 FREE Advent Calendar posters when you pre-order.
The calendars will be sent out in the Autumn in plenty of time to give them out during November.
So now the question is, Who could you bless with a calendar this year? Could you chat with your church about giving them to all the families who are on your Messy Church or Toddler Group list? Do you have a link with a local school or nursery who might appreciate calendars for the children to take home or poster versions for in class? I’m always really excited to hear about how people give away their calendars, and how people love using them to connect with the story, even those who are not children. I know it’s early, but let’s make plans to inspire and help people really celebrate Jesus this Christmas and connect with the God who came to live as one of us.
