Advent and Christmas Stories

A treasury of stories, verses and songs

Estelle Bryer and Janni Nicol



This illustrated treasury of over fifty stories, verses, songs and puppet plays range from Advent and the Twelve Days of Christmas, to the flight into Egypt.  Estelle Bryer and Janni Nicol tell their favorite Christmas stories with an approach that is both simple and profound.  They draw on their lifelong experience as Waldorf kindergarten educators, puppeteers, and as mothers. These stories will delight young children, and invite parents and teachers to become more confident storytellers.

Estelle Bryer and Janni Nicol offer a treasury of Christmas stories that create a peaceful, enfolding space for our children, where wonder can do its healing work.  Each of these tales inspires us to take a deep, fulfilling breath of imagination and let Christmas radiance grow in our eyes, words and hearts.  They lead us beyond the ordinary laws of nature into the truth of miracles and wonders: we discover the holiness of rabbits and birds, turtles and trees as they guide the holy family.
