Book Description:

Explore the Christmas narrative with your children! Whimsical illustrations pair with skillful rhyme as you follow Mary and Joseph on their adventure to becoming parents to God’s own son. From the donkey and animals in the stable, to the angels and Heavenly hosts, this story is a celebration of the good news that came down to earth as Christ entered into our broken world to become its Savior. Whether you add this to your family’s advent tradition or gift it to another growing family, it is sure to delight all the little ones in your life.

Jessica’s Review:

This is a very simple illustrated children’s book that is aimed at the very young (about ages 2-3) to help them understand the story of Jesus’ birth. It covers the basics without too many details and offers gorgeous illustrations that enhance the story. There are animals throughout pages and they even help in sharing of the story and celebration of Jesus’ birth. 

Many thanks to the publisher Discovery House for granting my a copy via NetGalley.
