Christmas Carols for Your Child’s Heart

As I write this post, it is not yet Thanksgiving but in the background I am enjoying listening to Joy: An Irish Christmas by Keith and Kristyn Getty. Even my 2-year-old granddaughter has begun to sing along to some of the simpler songs on this CD, such as “Jesus, Joy of the Highest Heaven.” Christmas carols and songs such as these can be a great way to teach children important biblical truths, as well as celebrate the season with a right emphasis.

A really helpful resource for families that I would also highly recommend is: Christmas Carols for Kid’s Heart (Hymns for a Kid’s Heart, Vol. 3). Here is a brief description from Amazon:

No other time of the year is filled with as much excitement and gleeful expectancy as Christmas, and no one seems to enjoy the season more than children. Christmas is a time for making memories. And musical memories are one of the most precious gifts we can give the children we love.

In this third volume of Hymns for a Kid’s Heart, Joni Eareckson Tada and Bobbie Wolgemuth collaborate to help you teach twelve classic Christmas carols to the children you love. With richly orchestrated music, true stories, prayers, and Scripture, Christmas Carols for a Kid’s Heart will feed your child’s soul during the Christmas season.

KIDS WILL:

  • Be inspired by the true stories of the songwriters.
  • Connect with tenderly written devotionals.
  • Learn to sing twelve classic Christmas carols.
  • Practice piano and guitar with printed music.
  • Understand more about God’s character and grace.
  • Memorize a Bible verse with each hymn.
  • Learn to pray along with their singing.

ADULTS WILL:

  • Give children a lasting musical treasure.
  • Experience the pleasure of filling young hearts with joy.
  • Be equipped with the tools to teach children twelve classic Christmas carols.
  • Enlighten young people with an understandable theology.
  • Enjoy prayer and Bible memorization along with kids.

Includes a fully orchestrated CD with children’s voices singing along with Joni and Bobbie, and simple piano music with guitar chords.
