Set in the early 1900s, the story follows a six-year-old named Alice who is spending the Christmas holiday with her grandfather. As they play in the snow and decorate cookies,
Alice cannot think about much else besides the toys Santa will be bringing her that night.
When Papa shares with her the story of his Christmas during the Civil War
where he was separated from his family and only had a new friend named Nephi for company,
Alice realizes that she might want to meet Nephi this Christmas too.
Papa's Book of Mormon Christmas
by Emma Rae Parker
illustrated by Alexa Terry Hanson
This is a tender little picture book that reminds all of us that there is more to Christmas
than all of the trappings and delights. Finding friends in the Book of Mormon really brings it to life. Kids want to know that the characters and the stories are real.
The illustrations are sweet and help portray the message.
