Advent Living Book List


The Nourishing Feast has been created around the love for Living Books. In December, families gather together and take time to remember the birth of Jesus our Savior. What better way to slow down and enjoy this season than with living books?

These picture books are not essential to Advent, but they will add a beautiful rhythm to your time together as a family.
