The Advent guide is designed for sharing with your children the story of Christmas and God's great plan for Jesus' birth! Included in the free download:

  • Illustrations from The Jesus Storybook Bible
  • Bible verses and reading plan for each day
  • Instructions for making the calendar
  • A personal note and introduction from author Sally Lloyd-Jones

Along with each Scripture reading is a corresponding story to read from The Jesus Storybook Bible by Sally Lloyd-Jones, one of the most beloved children’s picture book Bibles in which every story points to Christ. You and your children will read 21 stories from the Old Testament—each ending with a paragraph that ties into the imminent birth of Jesus—and then 3 stories from the New Testament about the birth story of Jesus.

This Advent reading plan of Scriptures and stories from the Jesus Storybook Bible is a lot like the Jesse Tree Advent calendars. A Jesse Tree Advent tells the story of God's plan for salvation, starting with creation and continuing through the Old Testament to the birth of Jesus Christ.

The name Jesse Tree represents the genealogy of Jesus - Jesse is the father of David, an ancestor of Jesus - and comes from from the prophecy of the coming Messiah in the Bible, Isaiah 11:1:

A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse; from his roots a Branch will bear fruit. (NIV)
