Congrats to Jill who won the Totally Awesome, Super-Cool Bible Stories book giveaway.
A snowy night, a warm cabin, and a boy who hears the Christmas story told for the first time—beginning with Creation and ending with the Resurrection…..
In One Wintry Night, Young Zeb is lost and hurt in a snowstorm in the mountains. He finds a safe haven in a cabin with a woman who shares the Christmas story with him. But this isn’t just any version of the Christmas story. This one begins with the beginning, in the Garden of Eden, and goes through the Resurrection.
We’ve been reading this book as Emma’s bedtime story, one chapter each night. We’re enjoying the story and all three saying WOW at the illustrations. You can see a couple of examples in the flipbook sample of One Wintry Night. My favorites are wrinkly old Noah and the lion from Daniel’s story. The detail is stunning.
“Ruth Bell Graham has written the perfect Christmas book . . . with imaginative, stunning pictures. It is a book children and adults will love. The story is tried and true, well-told, and important. I can see children around the world sitting with a parent or grandparent saying, ‘Then what happened?’ or, ‘Turn the page. Let’s see the next picture.’ I love this story and I love this book.” — Barbara Bush
If you’re looking for a way to explain how a baby’s coming could save the world, One Wintry Night is a great book to tie it all together. Ruth Bell Graham does a fantastic job of leading us on a journey through the Bible.
