There’s hardly another holiday children look forward to as eagerly as they do to Christmas. This book accompanies a family throughout Advent all the way to Christmas Eve:
In kindergarten, everyone is busy making paper stars in preparation for Christmas. Everyone is helping decorate their home festively. And everyone is using an Advent calendar to count the days until they receive their presents. The wait is shortened by events like St. Nicholas Day, lighting the candles on the Advent wreath, baking cookies and visiting Christmas markets. And, of course, a Christmas tree needs to be found as well. At the nativity play, children learn why we celebrate Christmas in the first place.
For many children, receiving presents on Christmas Eve is the most exciting thing. But as this volume shows, the most beautiful thing about the holidays is spending time with our loved ones.

With charming images and surprising flaps, this book accompanies children throughout the Christmas period and conveys initial knowledge about this holiday.
