This book is written with the hope that new, meaningful customs and traditions will take root in many families, which will also have the next generation of children asking around Christmas time: “Are we going to decorate the house and talk about Jesus again?”
The unique and interactive book with 14 lessons is suitable for families, extended families, friends or home fellowship groups and will also work as part of a holiday programme for the children in your neighbourhood or church. Anyone can lead the group: Dad, Mom, Grandpa or Grandma. Although the discussions, prayer and singing are the most important elements of the programme, the activities are important, too, for reviewing the message and for keeping the youngsters busy!
CD with Celebrate Jesus song and step by step instructions and photos of activities.

Young children will love this adventure! With their sunglasses and tackies, they can follow Melino Ant as he discovers God’s wonderful world. In this delightful book, 5 to 8 year olds are introduced to the incredibly wonderful and beautiful world God created – first by listening to their parents reading the stories to them and later by reading the stories themselves. Fascinating facts about nature and various kinds of animals are told in simple language, so that children will know much more about their environment when they turn the last page of this book. They will discover that in God’s wonderful world, everything is created for a specific purpose. The message behind the stories, however, is to show that God cares for his creation, and that He loves his children most of all. Each of the 25 stories ends with a fun activity, which also teaches children important skills.
