The real reason for the holiday season sometimes gets lost beneath the presents, parties and pie – especially for children.
But, this year, a new Christmas tradition points kids to the real reason we celebrate – Jesus’ sacrifice on the Cross.
A Nest for the Savior is a new children’s book about a sparrow who finds the manger empty and fills it with a nest for Jesus. After reading the short story, children flip the book over to access the activity guide which gives them instructions to build their own nest for the Savior, using symbolic elements easily found around the house.
The book was written by local author Didi Zayas, who was previously the editor of The Good News, and illustrated by Deja Sessa, an artist from Hollywood, Florida, who currently lives in Fort Worth, Texas.
