I love reading my sons stories at bedtime. It’s a time of day I cherish, and they love snuggling together under the blanket and listening to me read. My older son is now old enough to start understanding what Christmas is about, he has caught the spirit of the upcoming holidays through the excited chatter of his school friends at his parochial school, so of course when he asks me to read him Christmas stories, I’m happy to oblige. I recently discovered the children’s book Belfry’s Christmas Gift from the Tales Of Little Overhill collection by Theo Presents, and it’s our newest addition to my sons’ growing library.
Belfry’s Christmas Gift is a beautifully illustrated book with an engaging story that kept me as interested as it did my sons, and focuses on themes that are important to develop the character of children. I want my sons to value people, not things, and to see Christmas, in addition to being the time we celebrate the birth of Christ, as also a time to reconnect with others, cherish relationships, be kind, and focus on giving. The story develops into a wonderful tale of friendship and love, one that would actually be enjoyable all year long, and it’s now proudly displayed on their home library shelf along with their other favorite story books.
I was not familiar with Theo Presents until I came across this book, and I was happy to see high quality, fun, entertaining faith based products with great lessons for children to enjoy, so this year I’m recommending Belfry’s Christmas Gift as a wonderful gift idea for children.
