Books Always Make Great Gifts

I received these products from WaterBrook & Multnomah for review.  If you're looking for Christmas gift ideas, you can't go wrong with books!  WaterBrook & Multnomah carries all kinds of books for all ages.  Just browse their selections and you're sure to find the perfect match for everyone on your list.  Let em tell you about the ones that I received:

Shh... Baby Jesus Is Sleeping by Lisa Tawn Bergren and illustrated by Laura Watkins ($7.99) The author invites children to snuggle in close and peek into the stable where the animals are celebrating the very first Christmas.  "All be quiet...settle down.  Shh, shh, shh.  Baby Jesus is sleeping."  So begins this sweet bedtime story in which all the animals in the nativity scene call their little ones to snuggle in close and rest quietly as they honor the arrival of a precious Baby - the Savior of all living things - that first Christmas night. 


Not a peep, Little Sheep.  Baby Jesus is sleeping!
Lie down now, Little Cow.  Baby Jesus is sleeping!...
We rest tonight, knowing he is near.
Our promised King is finally here!

The is a perfect gift for your little one at Christmas time!

Pembrick's Creaturepedia Skreean Edition by Andrew Peterson ($13.99) is a
detailed companion that's essential to all who travel to the lands of Skree.  It's also a must have for all Wingfeather Saga fans.  Now with all-new illustrations!

Sketcher, adventurer, disguiser and sneaker Ollister B. Pembrick roamed all of Skree with a sketchbook and pen, searching behind every tree stump and under every stone, in every river and on every hill, to discover and document the endless living wonders of the Maker's world.  He risked life and limb to compile sketches and details of the creatures of Skree, usually from the cover of a hollow log, a hedge or a pile of leaves.

Refer to this carefully documented Creaturepedia before traversing through the Stony Mountains or harvesting fartichokes within a fortnight after a sandstorm.  The drawings and field notes about squeeblins, toothy cows, oiples and more will surely save any explorer's life and will definitely keep them and their appendages from being gobbled.  Tread carefully, young adventurer.  The creatures within are not to be trifled with.

These days it can be hard to,find time for meaningful face to face interaction with friends and loved ones.  But this card set offers an easy quick start guide to help you with that.
