Book Description: Look! A Child’s Guide to Advent and Christmas presents Advent as special time for waiting and watching—paying attention—to the ways God comes to us.

Told from the point of a view of a child, the story weaves together familiar Advent traditions like the Jesse tree and the Advent wreath, biblical stories and characters, and reflections on what these stories call us to do and be.

This book reassures children of the presence of God in all times and places and invites them to become part of the holy work of making Christ present in the world.

With this new title, author Laura Alary and Illustrator Ann Boyajian add to the Paraclete Press line of children’s titles that are gaining an extensive following in the Evangelical, Catholic and Liturgical markets.
