Purpose of this Blog...

You may have noticed that not all books are equal in capturing children's imaginations and in cultivating those innocent, tender souls. My goal is to help you find the ones that do!

Nativity Hymn

Merry Christmas!  Today's book pairs liturgical poetry with sweet images of Christ's birth in the style of Byzantine iconography. Its simplicity and beauty draw its readers into the profound "Today!" of our Lord's birth...

Available HERE, from Orthodoxchristianchildren.com

Today the Virgin gives birth to the Transcendent One, 
And the earth offers a cave to the Unapproachable One! 
Angels with shepherds glorify Him! 
The wise men journey with a star! 
Since for our sake the Eternal God was born as a Little Child!

Christ is Born!
Glorify Him!
