Little One We Knew You'd Come by Sally Lloyd Jones


Little One We Knew You'd Come by Sally Lloyd Jones

The birth of a child is an occasion for joy, and when Jesus was born the whole world rejoiced. This unique Christmas story lyrically evokes for children the excitement of the day they were born, and the wonder of the miraculous birth at the centre of the Nativity story. Lush illustrations echo the simple poem in a dazzling celebration of birth and of the baby born that very first Christmas.


Jackie Morris's graceful, affecting watercolours ... make you remember the joy of a new baby -- Amanda Craig Times

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
