The Seed of Faith: A Christmas Miracle by Daniel Petronelli


It's Christmas time and Stephanie and her dad are finishing some holiday decorating. From the first page, the book sets into motion the rhythm of holiday traditions and the comfort of repeating them each year: decorating for Christmas, preparing delicious recipes, and getting together with family. As Stephanie and her dad share a warm cup of hot chocolate, her dad tells about events from 40 years ago that helped their community see Christmas in a whole new light.

Children will enjoy snuggling up with a parent to hear the tale that involved two towns at odds and the courageous group of young people who braved a blizzard to help make Christmas more special. With their child-like faith, they experienced a Christmas miracle that spread warmth, love, and forgiveness throughout both sides of the mountain. This sweet story will help children see that they can set an example for adults to follow. 

The illustrations by Emily Pritchett are truly breathtaking and wonderfully complement the story! Readers can check out the illustrator's website for more examples of her beautiful artwork. Children will enjoy coming back to this story again and again to relive the Christmas miracle.
