Pre-orders are being taken now, and will be posted to you at the beginning of October.
The Advent Calendar where the stickers tell the story!
This is an easy way to have fun as a family as you read the Christmas story, a short section at a time, each day in December.
This year the stickers are much bigger – you get a whole A4 sheet of stickers! – so they transform the picture as you add a sticker each day.
Every calendar comes with it’s own mini-storybook with the whole Christmas story told from an accessible version of the Bible (the NIrV).
There are forty stickers, so that Jesus can be ‘born’ on Christmas Day (25th) and the shepherds visit and the rest of the story happen after that, with the story finishing in January on ‘Twelfth Night’ and Epiphany.
The calendar includes the stories of Zechariah and Elizabeth and the birth of John the Baptist as well as Anna and Simeon at the temple, plus the responses of both Mary and Zechariah to their visits by angels! It’s the complete Bible text divided into roughly equal-ish sections so you have a sensible amount to read each day. Nothing is taken out, so you have Mary’s song of praise as well as Zechariah, the visit to the temple, the escape to Egypt and return to Nazareth.
The artwork is colourful and attractive, while seeking to be culturally, historically and geographically accurate, as we know that children (and adults!) learn theology from pictures!
If this is something you’d love to give to families you know, but you don’t have the budget, please get in touch as there are always gift copies available for people like you!
