Perfect for young toddlers.

A very simple retelling of the story of the first Christmas in words that young children can listen to and understand...It is never too soon, in my opinion, for children to start enjoying these images and hearing the words of this special Christmas so long ago. This book is perfect for young toddlers as they can not only hear the words and see the pictures they can also feel them...These textures really bring the story to life for little ones.

An ideal last minute stocking filler for those who wish to reinforce the Christian message. With shiny gold stars, woolly sheep and the kings’ luxurious cloaks to feel, very young children will enjoy running their fingers over the tactile pages of this brightly-illustrated book which tells the of the Nativity story in simple words, from Mary and Joseph’s donkey journey to Bethlehem, to the arrival of the three wise men.

Cork Evening Echo

This is a lovely telling of the story of Jesus’s birth with clear, block coloured illustrations outlined in black. The sheep, donkey and cows are furry to the touch and the wise men’s robes made of velvet and satin material. Baby Jesus is covered with a soft blanket. A lovely gift for a very young child.
