“We all long for it; sometimes we just don’t know how to put this longing into words. Charlie and Noel is the kind of book that will first help you remember the Christmas your heart knows. And then, it will help you teach this remembering to your children.”
“This is a beautiful, understandable, relatable, fun story my children will enjoy! I am guilty of getting caught up in the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season and often forget to reflect on every special moment of what this season is truly about. I am really looking forward to reading this story during December with my family! Thank you, Franziska, for a beautiful portrayal of advent season. May we all embrace and be ready for advent!!”
“This book is terrific for helping teach children the meaning of Christmas is more than just receiving gifts. It gives wonderful ideas for traditions that can be incorporated into any family. I enjoyed reading it to my own young children to help them understand the true meaning of Christmas.”
“Charlie and Noel is exactly the kind of Advent story I always searched for as a parish pastor. It has theological integrity, depth of meaning, and engaging characters that appeal to the whole family. Congregations and families from all denominations can deepen their appreciation for and observance of the Advent season by following Charlie and Noel through the days leading up to Christmas.”
