Christmas Unpacked is a great resource to help children and families explore the Bible together over the Christmas holidays. Three weeks of Bible readings help you focus on what Christmas is really all about. Meet Dr Luke as he tells you all about God's rescue plan. Find out Who the rescuer is and Why we need rescuing.
Beautifully presented with full-colour illustrations, it is actually two books in one:

XTB (eXplore The Bible) will help 7-11 year olds to get into the Bible for themselves. It's packed with pictures, puzzles and loads of help to follow the clues to see who Jesus is and why He came.

Table Talk - is designed for families (or groups) to use together. Based on just a few verses from the passage that XTB uses, it is suitable for families with children aged from 4 upwards. Table Talk forms the basis for a short family time together - maybe just five minutes at the breakfast or dinner table, or whenever best suits you.

“We really enjoyed this book!”

A really good way of going through the story of Jesus birth at Christmas with the children and seeing his rescue plan for us all. I have 4 children aged 12,11,8,5 and they all enjoyed doing this book as a group at breakfast time.


“A good way to kick-Start Christmas for young readers.”

This material could be a good way to get your kids involved in daily Bible reading for the first time.

Using fill in the gaps, letter codes, stickers and other activities your child will cover the Christmas story over 20 days.

It can be done with an adult, or requires a reasonable level of child reading. Covers about 5 verses a day of Luke 1-2.


“The great rescue”

This daily study has proved to be a really good resource that can be used effectively at what can often be a very busy time of year. The focus on the beginning of Luke's gospel and the arrival of the Lord Jesus as a rescuer to so many people then and now is very powerful! A great study to hook the family into further discussion and my twins loved the activities too!


“Great buy for kids that like to do written activities”

My 7 year old daughter has done several books in this series and loves them. This one did not disappoint ! She loved the rescue sticker. The teaching was very clear and made me think too!



This is a combination of Table Talk and XTB in the same book. We do Table Talk with our 4 year old and then our 7 year old does XTB afterwards. I couldn't recommend both Table Talk or XTB more. They are both absolutely fantastic.


“My 7 year old thinks it's great”

My son has really enjoyed this XTB. It would have been easier if the Table talk bit had been included as a separate booklet as my son didn't want me borrowing the book.


“Ordered by request from someone who had appreciated Easter unscrambled”

This filled a gap and was appreciated by a family with young children who wanted to have something to share together. It sold well - it was attractively presented and just the right length.


“Right level for my 6-year-old”

We'd been looking for Bible notes for our 6-year-old son for a while, and this seems to have hit the right level. There was just enough to think about for each day. The stickers were a big hit too.



My 9 year old son is enjoying the puzzles, word searches etc. I like the fact that it only has 21 days worth of studies as we always miss a few in the run up to Christmas!
Fairly repetetive, but that is what children need and enjoy.


“Adaptable: ejnoyed by churched and unchurched kids!”

Every Christmas I order a pile for my church families and they enjoy working through the days in advent.
This year I also decided to try it out on one of my SU school groups: mainly unchurched kids, half of them with English as a second language,some who find reading and writing a bit of a challenge - and the result:they absolutelty love their booklets! The variety of methods of presenting and teaching the Truth really engages them, as well as the colours, pictures and stickers.
Well done Alison and team!
