God's Gift by Lee Ann Mancini
In God's Gift, Christian and his sister Mary believe they get more presents at Christmas. However, Jacob and Jeremiah believe they get more presents on Hanukkah. The children learn that Christmas and Hanukkah are about celebrating the gift God has given to His children. It's not about how many presents are under the tree at Christmas or the eight days of presents for Hanukkah. It's about God's provision for those He loves. God gives the gift of the Messiah to the Christians and the gift of Light to the Jews. The true gift from God is learned in this colorful holiday story!
Beautifully illustrated hardcover book designed for children ages 3 – 8.
God's Gift by Lee Ann Mancini is a well written holiday book for children who celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, or both holidays because it shows that it is not the gifts that truly matter (though they are nice), but the people, God, and the feelings involved.God's Gift by Lee Ann Mancini has adorable pictures and uses words that children will be able to read, understand, and comprehend to teach important lessons that apply no matter if the child is Christian or Jewish. I personally liked how it made both equal to each other. This would literally be perfect for children who are growing up with one Christian and one Jewish parent. The characters are all very cute and they are young enough that young children can truly understand them. In my mind this book would be best for children ages three through six.
