Christmas Love Letters from God by Glenys Nellist

Written for children ages four to eight, Christmas Love Letters from God cleverly combines both prose and poetry as the story of Jesus’ birth unfolds. The book includes seven stories, beginning with Isaiah’s prophecy and ending with the visit of the wise men. Following each story, the child will find his or her own letter from God, folded into a small envelope attached to the page. Each letter begins with a space in which to write the child’s name, so each one can be specially addressed to the child. Written as if God is speaking, each personalized message gives the young reader a sense of wonder as they discover anew the Christmas holiday and the birth of Jesus. A very special Bible verse, entitled God’s Perfect Promise, also accompanies each story and letter as God’s personal words of love, promise, and hope.
Age Level: 4 - 8

Glenys Nellist

Although I live in Michigan, USA, I was born and raised in a little village in northern England.

I grew up in a big old house, with two wonderful parents and seven siblings. My dad was the one who introduced me to the gospel. My mum was the one who encouraged me to work with children.

And at primary school, my teacher was the one who urged me to write. One day a week, I was one of the lucky few withdrawn from the classroom to sit in big, comfy armchairs in the teachers' lounge. There, in front of a roaring log fire, with pencil and paper at the ready, I would write.

I never would have imagined that four decades later, I would be blessed enough to be an author of children's books, or be married to a wonderful husband, or be mum to four sons, and a grandma too. But of course, no eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him. (1 Corinthians 2:9)

And to God, alone, be the glory.

My Review

Glenys did a wonderful job telling The Christmas story so that small children could easily understand.  Another book in the series of Love Letters from God. Such a beautiful story and beautifully illustrated by Rachel Clowes. The Christmas story is beautifully written and has verses kids can memorize to their heart. They are short so easy for them to remember. The kids loved the little letters to them from God they could open. We had to take turns on that cause micah is only 3 but he loved the story as well as Maddi who is 6. Maddi is the one who can write so she will write for the both of them their letter back to God. Great book make a great gift to little children. 5 star
