Back of Book:
Simple and sincere, this retelling of the Christmas story is perfect for children under five, introducing them to a classic story and its message of love. Bright illustrations help the tale along, telling little children about all the events of the nativity: the angels’ visits to Mary and Joseph, the journey to Bethlehem, the shepherds and the angels, the wise men’s travels and encounter with Herod, and Mary and Joseph’s care for the baby that would grow up to show the world God’s love.
This is a perfect story to share with a Preschool or Kindergarten audience. It very sweetly tells the story of the birth of Christ. It begins with the angel telling Mary that she will be carrying Jesus, and ends with Joseph and Mary leaving for Egypt. The text is well written and easy for readers and listeners to follow along with. Children will love the beautiful and soft illustrations. I am looking forward to sharing this story with my preschoolers this year.
