One Wintry Night Review & Giveaway!


This lovely book, One Wintry Night, was waiting for me when I arrived at my parents house recently. I received a copy of the book as part of the Tommy Mommy program via Thomas Nelson publishers! I'm always excited to read a new Christmas book and this one has been a lovely read ~

We haven't read it all in one sitting as it is quite lengthy especially for the age range of 4-7 listed with the book. But, it certainly is worth the read even in multiple sessions. The illustrations are beautifully done!

The story is beautifully done as well and since my Dad was sitting and listening in he said I could tell you how much he loved it as well! The Gospel is clearly presented as well as why we needed Christmas in the first place beginning in the Garden of Eden with the first sin and separation from God.

You can check out the flip book here.

This book will make a great addition to our Christmas books and I hope you'll get a chance to read it too! 

One of you will win a copy by leaving a comment on this post letting me know what Christmas story you look forward to hearing each year!

Comments will be accepted until Thursday December 19 at 10pm Mountain Time and a winner announced after that.

Disclosure: I received a copy of this book to share about here and all opinions and thoughts are my own.

I got it this year from the library. It would be a wonderful book to read while doing a Jesse Tree as it follows the whole Bible story from creation to Jesus' death.

We like The Christmas Story according to Luke, a book for children that has pretty illustrations to look at along with the text of the Bible. My little ones also like for me to read parts of Dicken's A Christmas Carol to them.

Christy said...

We love reading The Tale of Three Trees.

Rhonda said...

my very favorite book to read is
"Paul's Christmas Birthday" We got it at a yard sale when my children were young and I guess I like it so much because my birthday is near Christmas too

Sharon T said...

I enjoy hearing and reading the original Christmas story in the Bible from Luke 2. Merry Christmas.

Hi, Heather, I like the Christmas story from Luke 2. I have just received The Crippled Lamb by Max Lucado and now it's one of my favorites. Sure would love to read .."Wintry Night." Thank you for the opportunity to enter the giveaway.

We love the Luke 2 of Jesus birth.
Thanks for the opportunity to enter this giveaway.

I always like the Greatest Christmas Pageant ever! But Wooly's Shepherd story is becoming a new favorite.

I am reading this book (on your pic) in Dutch :-) Such a nice story!

angelak said...

I like reading the Legend of the Candy, but as we add more books to our collection, I am falling in love with others too.

angie said...

'Room for a Little One' is one of my favorites. But my kids have outgrown most of the Christmas picture books. So this book from Mrs. Graham sounds like it is a bit meatier. Thank you for hosting this giveaway!

Sarah said...

We love "The Christmas Miracle of Jonathon Toomey", "A Christmas Carol" and, of course, the Biblical account in Luke 2. I would love to add "One Wintry Night" to our collection for Christmas books!

Deborah said...

I bought the Best Christmas Pageant Ever at a school book fair over 25 years ago. I have read it every year since then. My children love to hear it as well.

Though we have a small collection of Christmas books, we have been wanting to grow it. This year I have been very purposeful to check out recommended books from the library and then note the ones we really like to try to get them throughout the year. I've really liked the Jonathan Toomey book so far! I also really like The Crippled Lamb. I'll have to check this one out too!

Thanks for the review!
Kristin

We read The Crippled Lamb by Max Lucado and We Believe in Christmas by Karen Kingsbury.

What a wonderful giveaway. Thanks for the opportunity.

Merry Christmas to you and your family!

Honestly I don't have a specific children's book that I love at Christmas. I love the Christmas story from the bible and a few other special adult books, but this would be a great thing for my babies! And we do always read 'Twas the Night before Christmas, but I don't think of that as a favorite Christmas book for some reason...

Ruth Bell Graham was a mentor to me via her books when I was a young mama. I would love a copy of this book to read to my grand babies. I will never forget my mama reading The Little Match Girl to us and crying at the sadness of the story as she read.

Carrie said...

I'd love to win a copy! We haven't read this story yet.

We love reading the original Christmas story in the book of Luke- we don't really have any other stories that we traditionally read but we do enjoy reading about all the Christmases in the Little House Books and in Ralph Moody's books.

Carters said...

We found a new favorite this year: Why Christmas Trees aren't perfect. My kids ask to read this one over and over again.
