Meeting Jesus through the Jesse Tree: <I>Stories and Activities for Advent</I>

Back in print with revised stories and format to accommodate a larger age range of participants. 

The telling of religious stories is becoming a lost art, but children still need stories to show them who they are and what their ancestors were like. It gives them a sense of their own religious history and their place within it. The Advent tradition of creating a Jesse Tree uses stories and symbols to present such a history. This book offers twenty-four stories for this custom, and directions for making seven kinds of Jesse trees.
