As a young girl, growing up in the 80’s, I was in awe of astronauts and the mere thought that someone had once stepped on the moon.
As we turn the page to the last month of 2021 and begin to prepare our homes for the coming Advent season so do we as parents prepare our families’ hearts for the true reason behind the Christmas festivities.
Two years ago I was desperately searching for a way that Hamish could enjoy the magic of Christmas and somehow still know the true reason for the season. He was still really little and although we had read the story of the birth of Christ in his Bible book, he was unable to put the connection between the birth of Jesus and Christmas.
I then discovered that Superbook had a beautiful Christmas DVD combo consisting of 2 stories:
The first Christmas and The birth of John the Baptist
I knew this was the perfect opportunity for me to help him see the Bible come to life as we watched the story of the First Christmas together. We have since watched this DVD several times and he has begun to understand that Christmas is so much more than just Santa, his elves, and gifts.

More than just a DVD
However, something else happened that first day that we met the Superbook team to receive the DVD. Superbook was no longer just another brand or a product we would cast on a shelf until we needed it. Superbook became real to Hamish as he asked for Gizmo, the cute robot mascot, and eagerly wanted to watch more movies.

Superbook became a safe App on my phone for Hamish to play games and watch Bibles stories. We followed their social media and used the crafts in our homeschool Bible lessons and all too soon we found ourselves ready to celebrate another Christmas and this time I confidently knew where to turn to prepare Hamish’s heart for the coming festive season.
Last year, we, once again, excitedly, joined the Superbook First Christmas experience and made advent crafts while we decorated our homes, baked cookies, and got ready to join people from all over South Africa to watch The first Christmas episode at the same time and see how Chris and Joy, together with Gizmo find out the true meaning of Christmas.
Superbook has become an important part of our family’s Christmas traditions.

The first Christmas experience and you are invited
This year Superbook will host a fun and meaningful Christmas experience at the V & A amphitheater on the 3 and 4 December from 11am- 12pm and you are invited to bring your children and experience the magic as they watch the nativity come alive on screen in a fun and relatable way that children can truly grasp.
The show is free and your children will enjoy watching, laughing, dancing, singing, and even getting to meet Gizmo the robot. Hamish and I are both super excited and can’t wait. It promises to be a wonderful experience, great morning out, and a fantastic way for us to start our advent season.
To help share the Christmas spirit we have collaborated with Superbook to bless one lucky Fun Mamma SA reader with a wonderful Superbook hamper.

Why I love Superbook
Superbook to me is so much more than just another App that Hamish uses. Superbook is a community, a place where the Bible comes to life and a safe place for him to play games, watch movies and learn as he grows his faith at an age-appropriate and child-friendly level. Superbook is my guide to teaching him the Bible and their crafts and parent discussions help me to present important topics and hard conversations in a way that allows us both to feel relaxed and connected.
Not only do Superbook have a great App, wonderful videos, and great games but they also have craft activities, host fun events, and have a monthly movie night to celebrate a new season of videos.
Currently, on season 4, Superbook has been hosting a new episode each week on www.superbook.com
Superbook Family Movie Nights
These movie nights are designed for families to enjoy wonderful nights of bonding and spiritual growth together. Each episode touches on a particular area of focus and this week is the last episode of season 4 and will focus on Prayer.
As we know communication is so important and The Lord’s prayer, outlined in the Bible shows us so beautifully how to pray. This episode of Superbook will help you to explain the importance of prayer to your children and teach them how to pray.
You can also download the discussion guide to continue the conversation long after the episode.
The videos are screened from Friday until Sunday night, on the last Friday of the month, only, and these last episodes screen from Friday the 26th of November from 6 pm until the 28th of October at midnight.
