God's Gift - A Children's Book Review

What better gift to give a child this Christmas than a book.  Even better a book that shares the message of God.  God's Gift is a children's book in the Adventures of the Sea Kids series.  It is an award winning series that seeks to help children build a strong foundational relationship with Jesus.

God's Gift shares the message of Christmas.  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 celebration 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!

This is a very cute book.  I love the colorful images that remind me of both Finding Nemo and the Little Mermaid characters.  The story itself is great because it teaches children of both Christmas and Hanukkah.  As with the other books in this series, there are two new hidden objects in this book that children can find hidden within the pages.  I like this addition as it gives an extra entertainment level for kids as they are learning about God's love.

***Thanks to Book Crash  for providing me a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
