A couple of years ago, my mother gave our family the book "Jotham's Journey". It's a story of a young boy and his adventures leading up to the coming of the Messiah. The story starts the 4th Sunday before Christmas and ends on Christmas morning.
We missed our little tradition last year (sniff, tear). This year, however, we are reading it as though we have never heard it before! My kiddos cannot get enough and every night they ask to read ahead. At the end of each night's section of the story, there is scripture and explanation about that time and how it relates to the Advent season as we celebrate.
I don't know if you have your own Advent traditions, but if you are looking for one, "Jotham's Journey" is certainly worth diving into!!
