I was so excited to receive these and they are beautiful cards. However, I was under the impression that each picture would correspond to the scripture/topic on the back. Instead, the content about Rahab is on the back of King David’s picture etc. etc. As well, there are pictures of only 12 members of Christ’s family - the rest are fillers for the tree (although with great scripture references/chronological story still). So, I think they will be a good resource but I am bit disappointed as I felt the product was inaccurately described.
We purchased this advent for the 2020 season. My kids loved it! Every day they were excited to read more and put the "puzzle" together. I didn't mind the roman numerals as we just used it as an extra learning tool. The only disappointment (2 of them) are that on days 19 and 20 the scripture reference is wrong. Both days read 1 Samuel and SHOULD read 2 Samuel. Again, we used this time as a learning tool and I had my kids look up the references and read them from the Bible itself...this is how the errors were discovered. Overall I recommend this advent! We enjoyed reading and learning about the "uncommon" people and ways that God brought us the Savior, Jesus!
First the quality of the cards were really nice. Great printing and paper. But mostly we loved these because of how we used them. We did this for our Advent calendar this year. Each night we opened a card. I had put them in little brown bags and clothes pinned them to string on our wall. As we read each card and learned the people in Jesus’s family I could see it was becoming ingrained in my preschoolers mind. He became excited to open up one each night and slowly build the puzzle. I did make a modification that we opened up the Jesus card on the 25th (it was originally to be placed in the 23rd) as we celebrate His arrival.
The verse, story and questions were short enough for a preschooler to listen but also deep enough for older family discussions.
This will become a family tradition for us for sure.
The quality of this product is amazing as is the creativity with which it is designed and even packaged. The order and shipping process was quick and smooth and well communicated. What a blessing to find this gem of a company and their amazing products!
I love these! My 4 and 2 year old both are engaged reading these. They are short, to the point, and so spot on theologically!
