I'm taking a break from piano talk today and sharing one of our favorite family Christmas traditions.
If you're a parent of young children and you enjoy celebrating the true meaning of Christmas - you'll absolutely LOVE reading this book for Advent!
The Jotham Journey Trilogy is written by Arnold Ytreeide and I can't say enough good things about these books. They're FULL of excitement, mystery, and plenty of ADVENTURE!
Whether you have boys or girls, your kids will absolutely love reading these books AND they'll get to focus on the true meaning of Christmas.
It's been a wonderful tradition for my family for many years and it won't be stopping anytime soon. My son, Matthew, is now 17 years old, but he voted to dive into the series again next month.
Gotta love a kid who loves tradition!
As you can see in the picture above, this is really a series of books.. There are 4 in the series and you only read one book each year.
Technically, you could read the books in any order, but I recommend reading in the order they were published. (And I'd definitely start with Jotham's Journey!)
A Few Important Notes
ONE - The books are broken down into sections of daily readings that lead right up to Christmas. If you want to read this year, you need to start on December 3, so get your book soon. It's available in both paperback and Kindle.
TWO - This is a book that you'll read WITH your children and I would definitely follow the recommendation of ages 9 and up. Some parts could be frightening for young children.
Nonetheless, I can’t say enough good things about this series. I’m SO grateful that my son still enjoys reading them with me!
If you've never read them with your kids - now is the perfect time to start! You can grab your book here!
