Synopsis

Birth of Jesus by Jan Lewis

This book includes all the best-loved aspects of the famous story, from the appearance of the Angel Gabriel before the virgin Mary, to the arrival of the shepherds and wise men at the stable. It retells key moments from the first Christmas, such as the journey to Bethlehem, Jesus sleeping in a manger, and the gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. This special padded boardbook is ideal for babies and toddlers to hold, look at, and talk about. Bright, appealing illustrations and simple rhyming text make this the perfect introduction to the Nativity. When a glowing angel informs Mary that she is going to have a son, the woman frets, because she is not yet married to her fiance Joseph. The angel tells her not to worry, because the baby will be a holy child - the Son of God. However, when the Roman emperor orders a count of all his subjects, Joseph and the pregnant Mary are forced to travel from their home in Nazareth to the little town of Bethlehem...The words and pictures in this sturdy little boardbook have been carefully chosen to help little ones share and treasure the Christmas message.
