This Christmas Night: Reflections from Our Hearts to Your Home
by Billy Graham & Ruth Bell Graham
A small coffee table book, which is a combination of this famous christian couple’s writings infused with encouragement and inspiration. The focus is Christ and His coming, the origin and namesake of Christmas. The Grahams share their thoughts and realizations on God’s love and His gift of Christ to the world and Christ’s gift to us. Bible verses and images correlate and compliment the readings. The reader is impressed to see that “Joy to the World” is more than a song or a sentiment, it’s a reality one can choose to receive and grow in on life’s journey.

In this fun, rhythmic picture book, Christmas is celebrated in the ocean, where the Christmas kelp is trimmed by horn sharks, toys are built by elfin sharks, cookiecutter sharks keep Santa’s tummy happy, and hammerhead sharks pull Santa’s sled. The story and illustrations effectively create Christmas festivities under the sea among its creatures. It’s a brief cheerful read especially for shark fans like us!
