Child of Bethlehem by Elena Pasquali


Child of Bethlehem by Elena Pasquali

Closely following the Gospels, this lilting retelling of the nativity perfectly matches Kristina Stephenson's heartwarming illustrations which put children at the heart of the story. Elena Pasquali tells the stories of Mary and Joseph, the shepherds and the wise men as they journey to the stable in Bethlehem, with gentle moments aside to remember the children of Bethlehem who watch eagerly on as the miraculous events of the first Christmas unfold. A delightful retelling of the nativity to bring you to the heart of Christmas.
