Written for children ages four to eight, Christmas Love Letters from God cleverly combines both prose and poetry as the story of Jesus’ birth unfolds. The book includes seven stories, beginning with Isaiah’s prophecy and ending with the visit of the wise men. Following each story, the child will find his or her own letter from God, folded into a small envelope attached to the page. Each letter begins with a space in which to write the child’s name, so each one can be specially addressed to the child.
Written as if God is speaking, each personalized message gives the young reader a sense of wonder as they discover anew the Christmas holiday and the birth of Jesus. A very special Bible verse, entitled God’s Perfect Promise, also accompanies each story and letter as God’s personal words of love, promise, and hope.

- Review by Penny
“Christmas Love Letters” is a Christian fiction children’s picture book, written by Glenys Nellist. The precious pictures were created by Rachel Clowes.
I this storybook, we see seven stories surrounding our Savior’s birth. We have the prophecy of the birth from Isaiah, through to the wise men’s visit. Each story tells what happens and has a little note from the main character/s. There is also a verse for each one, called “God’s Perfect Promise”. And then, a 3-D card “from God”.
There is only one possible problem that I foresee…I’m concerned that a child might have trouble reading the font that has been chosen for the post card, “from God”.
I still love this book and do recommend it for young readers, and those who read to them.
