    Thirteen-year-old Amon enjoys playing with his friends, but he is eager to join his father in the temple court with the other men. Amon sacrifices his childhood—and grows up fast—when he sets out to defend his father, who has been falsely accused of a crime. Along the way, Amon witnesses the Biblical events of the Easter Story. He sees the Palm Sunday crowds, hears Jesus address the angry mob, is present during Judas' betrayal, and witnesses Jesus' death and resurrection. A devotional appears after each of the twenty-eight chapters, consisting of a Bible verse and questions for discussion or reflection. Occasional black-and-white illustrations.

    From Arnold Ytreeide, author of Jotham's Journey, comes Bartholomew's Passage, another family advent story. The story follows Bartholomew, a young boy whose village is ransacked by Roman soldiers, as he travels through Israel searching for his family—through slavery, suffering, and adventurous escape. He finds his family one fateful night and introduces them to the Son of God born in the manger in Bethlehem. The book is divided into sections to be read one each day of the four weeks of the Advent season, with extra material and scripture for discussion at the end of each section. The story, meant to be read over the entire Advent season, is long with small two-color illustrations at the beginning of each section. It is not a picture book, but when used as a companion to Advent traditions, read aloud to the family by the light of the Advent candles, Bartholomew's Passage will be a meaningful reminder of God's great love and great gift to us in Jesus. A brief history of Advent customs and a chart of Advent dates until 2080 make this book easy to implement even for those unfamiliar with Advent traditions. Bartholomew's Passage includes violence and tragedy that may need to be summarized or skipped over for the youngest children, but it is the author's intent (as he states in his note to parents) that "the point is not to cover up the dark side of life but rather to show how the love of God and His Son Jesus Christ is the light of our lives." ~ Rachel D.

    Tabitha is the daughter of a shepherd who is taking his family to his birthplace. Tabitha is a curious and courageous young girl who often finds it difficult to be docile and "know her place" as girls were expected to do in Biblical times. As Tabitha travels with her family, she watches as the Romans take her father prisoner, spends time with Zechariah and Elizabeth, helps Mary and Joseph just before Christ's birth, and ends her travels at the stable in Bethlehem. Each chapter begins with instructions to light a specific candle(s) on your Advent Wreath, followed by the text of the story. The end of each chapter contains a devotional with a Bible verse and discussion questions that pertain to themes or events from the chapter. A total of twenty-eight devotions are included.

    Beginning the fourth Sunday before Christmas, many families set aside a few minutes a day to celebrate Advent and zero in on the true reason for the season. This wonderful story is designed to be used during Advent but really could just be read and enjoyed like a typical book. For each day of Advent, the book provides a short chapter of a story about a young boy whose family were shepherds during the time of Jesus' birth. Due to Jotham's poor attitude and a misunderstanding, Jotham is separated from his family and must travel across Israel in search of them. He faces many dangers but also meets many new friends. Ultimately, Jotham is reunited with his family on Christmas Eve, just in time for them all to witness the birth of Christ together. It's a charming tale, full of adventure and lessons, and is ideal for the whole family to read aloud. Each chapter probably takes about 10-15 minutes to read and usually concludes with a scripture verse that ties in with the story as well as a small, 1-2 paragraph devotional. Whether you use it to celebrate Advent in the traditional way or just read it for fun, this story is entertaining and a great reminder of what Christmas is really all about.
