In this heart-warming and original version of the Christmas story for young children, beautifully illustrated with images that are full of colour, light, joy and festive feeling by Bernadette Watts, Katy sets out in the snow to visit the new baby born in the innkeeper's stable, bringing special gifts but will she get there to offer them to the baby.

Synopsis

Katy's Christmas Gift by Bernadette Watts

Katy sets out in the snow to visit the new baby born in the innkeeper's stable. She is bringing gifts: a loaf of bread, her cat Sasha and, most importantly, her favourite toy -- a wooden bird whistle. But Sasha doesn't want to play in the cold snow, and the animals of the forest eat the bread. Soon Katy's carefully chosen gifts are gone except the most special one of all. As the snow gets deeper and she gets colder, Katy wonders whether she'll ever have the chance to give her gift to the baby?

Reviews

'Beautifully, imaginatively written... it is wonderful to have a new Christmas nativity story to share with children.'

'This is the most heart-warming version of the Christmas story I have read in a while. It is written in a beautiful style, ideal for either reading aloud, or quietly and independently. The endearing illustrations draw the reader into various atmospheric scenes and surroundings that you imagine yourself being a part of, wanting to dive in and live the story for real yourself.'
