What People Are Saying:
"WHY DIDN'T SOMEONE DO THIS BEFORE?"
"Storybook Advent Calendar makes me think "Why didn't someone do this before?" It's uplifting, educational, and celebratory for adults and children. I especially like the entry for December 7, which explains the similarities and differences of Christianity, Judaism and Islam in a simple, profound and beautiful way."
-- Tina B. Tessina, Ph.D, psychotherapist and author of 'Money, Sex and Kids: Stop Fighting about the Three Things That Can Ruin Your Marriage (Adams Media 2008)
"I just love the concept and the execution. My grand daughter loved the stories and I can't stop listening to the carols. You deserve every success."
-- Cliff Lague, Spain
"I am awestruck with the book's warmth, its caring and loving sentiment, and totally enamored with the artwork!"
