This is a Christ centered alternative to Elf on a Shelf. A Traveler named Talib (meaning truth) comes to visit with children every day of December (in our family he is a plush camel). Talib writes the kids a new letter each day. Every letter includes a portion of the journey to Bethlehem, a scriptural reference, and mission for the kids to accomplish that day. It is a great way to experience the magic of Christmas and keep the focus on the Reason for Christmas.
