Create a New Tradition this Christmas – Give Jesus a Gift from Your Family
Book Review – A Stocking for Jesus by Suzanne Middendorf Arruda & illustrated by Betina Ogden
Reviewed by Lisa M. Hendey

It’s never too late to begin a new family tradition, especially one which emphasizes the true meaning of the Christmas season. With her book A Stocking for Jesus (Pauline Books and Media, September 2003, paperback) author Suzanne Arruda shares the inspiring story of one little girl who remembered what Christmas is truly all about.

Young readers and their parents will be inspired by the story of young Elise, who takes time amidst the holiday decorating to remember Jesus on the occasion of his birthday. Elise and her family create a new family tradition by giving gifts to Jesus in the form of acts of love, service and prayer. The family gifts are noted on slips of paper and placed in Jesus’ special stocking.

Along with the fun story and bright illustrations, this book comes complete with a ready-made family activity, enabling your child or family to create and fill your own “Stocking for Jesus”. With its emphasis on the true meaning of giving, A Stocking for Jesus deserves a place in your family’s holiday reading repertoire.
