Our family is very excited for the start of Advent. Last year we enjoyed a story called Ishtar’s Odyssey by Arnold Ytreeide which was a wonderful adventure across Persia as their caravan follows a star across the desert. You can read more about this and other books by Arnold at kregel.com.
This year we will be reading another book by the same author called; Jotham’s Journey. This is a widely popular, exciting story for the advent season, where readers follow ten-year-old Jotham across Israel as he searches for his family. Though he faces thieves, robbers, and kidnappers, Jotham also encounters the wise men, shepherds, and innkeepers until at last he finds his way to the Savior born in Bethlehem.
