One Wintry Night- Children’s Book Giveaway

children's book giveawayYAY! It’s a Tommy Nelson day! At least that’s what my kids say. 🙂

We began reading One Wintry Night tonight and of course, the kids love it already.  I loved that with the variety in age (almost 11 years old down to 21 months) for the younger  5 of the Woj tribe, the chapter of two pages was just perfect for everyone to listen.  The book is designed for ages 4-7, but we had all listening ears turned on. 😉

A snowy night begins with Creation and ends with the Resurrection as a lost boy hears the gospel of the Christmas story for the first time. With beautiful artwork and creative wording, the late Ruth Bell Graham has left a wonderful, timeless book that our children can enjoy for years to come.

I’d so love to show you a picture of how all five children were listening attentively, but since I had to get up from the snuggles and take the pic, I’m afraid a case of giggles came on and well…here’s the result:

And it’s a tad dark. But hey, I’ve never claimed to be a great photographer. 😉

Truly, the children are already looking forward to tomorrow night and two of them didn’t want to stop at chapter 1.  But we’re going to try to make it last until closer to Christmas.

So- would you like to win one for your snuggling clan? Or child? Or grandchild? I thought you might! Just follow the Rafflecopter and we’ll announce the winner on Friday.

Disclosure: I received this product from the publisher in exchange for my opinion. All opinions are my own.

  7. Hi Rachel,

    Thanks a bunch for featuring One Wintry Night. I was the illustrator and worked with Ruth Bell Graham to create this book. She was a truly amazing woman and a delight to work with. I do love the book and hope your followers enjoy it too. One little fun fact: I hid a cat and a pillbug on every page (except the crucifixion page). Some of them are pretty hard to find, but if anyone wants any hints I can tell them where they are hidden. But of course the best part of the book is the glorious story of God’s love and sacrifice for his little lambs (us).

  8. This would be a great book to start a new Christmas tradition with my grandchildren.

  9. Kari Grady says:

    I love to read from Grinch 🙂

  10. Lisa Matthew says:

    The Story of Jesus’s Birth from The Bible.

  11. We are collecting good books for our one year old. What a great suggestion!

  12. I LOVE the Christmas Miracle of Jonathan Toomey. Such a sweet story of how a simple nativity set and the innocence of children can soften our souls and change our hearts.

  13. Jada Smith says:

    We’re going through several Advent books right now but we love all things Lucado!

  14. Ever since I can remember, we have been reading “Twas the Night Before Christmas” on Christmas Eve. A few years ago, my dad sent the copy he read to us every year.

  15. Would love to share this with our grandkids (ages almost-8 down to 16 1/2 months)! Have always loved reading Berenstain Bears Christmas books (we have a couple or so of them, but can’t think of their titles now!), from our kids (now almost-29 and 26) to the grandkids. When our kids were growing up, we weren’t Christians, so used to read “‘Twas the Night Before Christmas” and other Santa-related books.

  16. Sha'rrell Haws says:

    The kids like “The Littlest Angel” great lesson there…

  17. Always looking for new Christmas books, this one looks great!

  18. I’m always looking for well written children’s books that will help me pass down our faith to our children.

  19. We normally read the Christmas Story from the Bible. This sounds like such a great book to add to their collection. Thanks!

  20. Jennifer M says:

    I am always looking for great books about the meaning of Christmas to read to my son.

  21. I bought this book for my class of Four Year Old students. I would read a chapter every morning and the would be so enthralled that when the chapter ended they would all groan. Such a great giveaway.

  22. I have loved this book for years and years… now, my grandson (3) is just about old enough to enjoy it , too!

  23. We checked this book out from the library and are currently reading it and LOVE it! I would love to own a copy!
