A wonderfully illustrated retelling of the story of Mary, Joseph, and baby Jesus through a delightful holiday tradition: the keeping of an advent calendar. Twenty-four miniature board books are arranged in sequence and nestled in a backer. The books are numbered 1 through 24 and, like the peek-a-boo windows of an Advent calendar, are meant to be opened one-per-day from December first through Christmas Eve. Read in sequence, the full-color four-page books capture the mystery of the first Christmas, from Gabriel's visit to Mary to Jesus' birth in the manger. The Jewel-like books, with gold-thread loops and three different trim sizes, also make memorable ornaments for the Christmas tree. 168,000 copies in print.
