Advent Storybook: 24 Stories to Share Before Christmas
By Antonie Schneider
Illustrator Maja Dusikova
Publisher North-South Books

As Benjamin Bear opens each successive door in his Advent calendar, the picture inside prompts his mother to tell him a story starting with a star that leads a little bear just like Benjamin to the manger of the baby Jesus. With each Advent window opened, the little bear in the stories meets others following the star and learns spiritual lessons. Mother Bear explains to Benjamin Bear the point of each story. From the story of the beggar, Benjamin learns that helping the needy can lighten our spirits and fill us with energy. He learns that God always hears our calls for help, that faith can move mountains, and that God always forgives us if we are truly sorry. Whether you choose to use this storybook in conjunction with your own Advent calendar or to read a story for each of the days of Advent, you and your children will be blessed with the true spirit of Christmas that they evoke.
