A Christmas Gift for Santa (board book)

When Santa Claus returns home after delivering Christmas presents to all the boys and girls, he wonders if he too will receive a gift. I thought this book was adorable! I would definitely gift it to anyone with a preschooler or younger. My 4 year old loved it!

I Wonder

I Wonder: Exploring God’s Grand Story, an Illustrated Bible, by critically acclaimed author Glenys Nellist. It is an inspirational Bible that encourages children to ponder the truths God has placed in their hearts by asking thought-provoking, open-ended questions after each story. This is a children’s Bible, but I truly think any child would enjoy this version. I found it delightful!

I’m Going to Give You a Polar Bear Hug! (board book)

In this delightful padded board book you’ll find adorable, cuddly illustrations that inspire children to get cozy. So, as they follow along with a story overflowing with winter fun, imagining all the cozy, warm hugs they might receive on a frosty winter day. So stinking adorable! This would make a fabulous stocking stuffer or Christmas present for a toddler or preschooler.

Beginner’s Bible Little Lamb’s Christmas

The Beginner’s Bible Little Lamb’s Christmas brings the story of Jesus’s birth to life from a new and fun but faithful retelling as readers follow little Lamb from the hillside to the manger where he celebrates the arrival of God’s only son. So, so precious. My 3 month old loved looking (and trying to eat, let’s be real here) the lamb while my 4 year old loved the story and playing with the lamb as well! This would be wonderful to give to new parents to start their library collection or a toddler – preschooler.
