Christmas Book Advent #4: Silent Night by Joseph Mohr and Thomas Kinkade

silentnight

Thomas Kinkade, the Painter of Light, illustrates the classic Christmas hymn.

This children’s book combines the gorgeous full-color illustrations of Thomas Kinkade and the reverent words of the Christmas hymn SILENT NIGHT.

My kids love looking at the pictures, and I love watching them. It’s fun to watch your child get excitedly absorbed in a book, but this is different. They are quiet while turning the pages, touching as they go, feeling the glow of the soft lights and finding the animals hidden in the snow.

The illustrations are full of simple, family holiday activities that take away the commercialism and remind children about the true meaning of Christmas.

Just a beautiful book for a wonderful season.
