The Road to Bethlehem Mini Book by Louise Cross

In this imaginatively written and captivatingly illustrated children's book, now in minibook format, we find out about the special journey Mary and Joseph take on the very first Christmas. We see who they meet, find out what happens on that very special night and meet the very important visitors who travel from afar to worship Jesus. Based on Luke 2:1--20 (and also Matthew 2:1--12), this lovely take on the classic Christmas story starts with Emperor Augustus calling the census that makes it necessary for Joseph and Mary to travel to Bethlehem. It describes Mary's tiring, uncomfortable journey and how she comes to give birth to the baby Jesus in the inn keeper's stable. We also see how the angels call for the shepherds to visit the stable and later how the wise men, too, come. The story ends with the tantalising promise of much more to tell of this amazing story and an invitation to explore more in the New Testament.
