I received an email the other day from Franziska of Home Naturally. She has written an Advent book called Charlie & Noel and asked me to take a look at it and share my thoughts. Note that today, Charlie & Noel is available on Amazon for just $.99.
Charlie & Noel
Charlie & Noel is a cute story about a little boy learning about the meaning of Advent. He's really resistant to the idea of Advent at first and doesn't want Christmas to be so far away. Be aware – Charlie uses some words like stupid in the beginning of the book, but it is contextually relevant.
If you're looking for a short and simple way for teaching your kids about Advent, Charlie & Noel is a good choice. It has a simple format: 25 short chapters with a few discussion questions. Each day the story advances a little more until you arrive at Christmas. The reading for each day will only take a few minutes. Franziska has also included links to additional reading and ideas for parents.
