“This is the bed where Jesus slept. This is the straw that lined the bed where Jesus slept.” From here, the story builds with each spread, adding a new element and explaining the relationships among the participants and witnesses to the first Christmas. From Jesus sleeping sweetly to the wise men bringing gifts, this charming book reminds readers young and not-so-young of the joyous event we celebrate at Christmastime. Children will love the delightful illustrations and the engaging repetition in this cumulative tale.
I love children's books that tell of the Christmas story, and this book is a perfect addition to our home library.
In this book, children are introduced to the people, places and things surrounding the story of Jesus’ birth. The story builds upon itself through the pages as each aspect is introduced to the reader. The illustrations are breath-taking and will capture your attention as well as your child's.
My younger child enjoyed the simplicity of how the story is told, while my older child was excited it was a book she could read on her own. Both kids have read this book over and over again, and could probably recite it by now!
I think this is a great book to add to your Christmas collection, and one your kids will enjoy for many years.
