Franklin and Bessie’s Picks—December 2021

December 1, 2021

This December at Ruth’s Attic Bookstore, we’re featuring books picked by Franklin Graham and Bessie the Cow.

Each month, Franklin picks a book based on its inspirational message, while Bessie picks a book for children to enjoy.

Franklin’s Pick: The Greatest Rescue Mission by Franklin Graham 

As you and your family prepare your hearts for Christmas, get your copy of a new Advent devotional by Franklin Graham.

The Greatest Rescue Mission features Scripture readings and insightful entries that tie together the problem of sin and the wonder of God’s great love through His Son, Jesus Christ.


“You shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins,” —Matthew 1:21, NKJV





Bessie’s Pick: Christmas is Coming! by Tama Fortner

The wondrous plan of the Christmas story started long, long ago. . .  The prophets knew, Mary and Joseph knew, the angels knew, the wise men knew . . . and now we know too!  

Christmas is for celebrating Jesus, God’s greatest gift to the world. While Christmas excitement often focuses on hanging lights, opening gifts, and decorating trees, Christmas Is Coming! offers a different—and true—reason for our joy and celebration. Designed to be read and reread during the days leading up to Christmas, the story lets children ages 2-6 listen with wonder and anticipation as the story of God’s plan for Jesus’ arrival unfolds.
