Author Franziska Macur has graciously agreed to give away a Kindle or PDF copy of Charlie & Noel: An Advent Calendar Story to three Five J's readers.
Charlie & Noel is a very creative way to help families discuss the real meaning of Christmas. In the story, you will get to know Charlie, a little boy who wishes he could just skip the whole waiting part and jump right into the presents. But Charlie doesn’t realize what he would miss or just how many magical moments the season has waiting for him.
The book has 25-chapters—one for each day of advent—and is a great read aloud for families with children ages 4-10. Each chapter is followed by discussion questions and related activities.
