The Story of Christmas Story Book Set and Advent Calendar

By Workman Calendars

Illustrated by Carolyn Croll

Retold by Mary Packard

Celebrate the season with an innovative Advent calendar, story book set, and tree-trimming keepsake.

Wonderfully illustrated and brimming with holiday spirit, this unique advent calendar features 24 jewel-like miniature board books to help children count down to Christmas. Each day from December 1st through Christmas Eve, open a book, just like the peek-a-boo window on an Advent calendar, and then hang it on the Christmas tree by its gold thread loop. Read in sequence, the books tell the magical story of the first Christmas, from Gabriel’s visit to Mary to the Three Wise Men gazing at the star to Jesus' birth. A treasured keepsake to reuse year after year.
