The wait for Christmas can be a long wait for children. Let them count down the days of Advent until Christmas arrives with this Away In a Manger Advent calendar featuring the beautiful artwork of Bernadette Watts. The calendar is 14-3/4 inches wide and 10-3/4 inches high with small windows which the child can open each day to mark off one more day of the Advent season. Each window opened adds a new detail to the nativity story. The stunning child friendly illustration on the front of the calendar shows Mary and Joseph making their way toward Bethlehem and the stable as animals and birds surround them as if they know something wonderful is going to happen. Touches of silver decoration add an elegant touch to the Away in a Manger Advent calendar. Opening one window a day on the Advent calendar and concentrating on the one new detail as they add to the nativity story can help a child learn to better understand the story and why the Christmas season is really celebrated. As they open more windows they have a visual image that lets them see that they are getting closer to the celebration of Christmas day and gives them a sense of time passing.
