God’s Gift is written by Lee Ann Mancini and is part of the award winning Adventures of the Sea Kids series. It’s the Christmas season and the Sea Kids are helping their families get ready for Christmas. Christian helps his father put lights on the tree and decorate the manger with Baby Jesus. Jacob helps his father prepare for Hanukkah. They put a giant menorah in their yard and light candles each day.
The next day while playing at the coralhood playground Christian and Jacob get into an argument over who gets the most gifts. When the children get home they question their parents about getting more gifts. Christian and Jacob’s mothers take the children to each others homes to teach them the difference between Christmas and Hanukkah. Even though they celebrate the Christmas season differently they celebrate for the same reason. They learn that Christmas is about God sending Jesus as a gift. The lighting of the menorah reminds us of miracle of light given to the Jews from God. The children learn that Christmas is not about gifts under the tree or gifts on each day of Hanukkah, they learn the true meaning of Christmas.
The is a wonderful Christmas story for children that teaches the true gifts from God. The book is a shiny hard cover book with shiny brightly colored pages. The story is perfect for a story to be read to a young child or for a young reader to read.
