Long ago, in a dusty barn, a mother took a child in her arms, wrapped him snug, made his bed in the hay. He was her gift that Christmas Day. There's no sweeter gift than a life so new. My best gift, little one, is you.
In this poignant and lyrical story by Printz Honor recepient Julie Berry, the miracle of Christmas and the promise in every new child come together in a luminous celebration of unconditional love and hope. With tender, incandescent illustrations by Annie Won, the wonder of the nativity story and the marvel of every baby come alive in a wholly extraordinary book for families everywhere.
A special, beautiful keepsake storybook to read, share, and cherish every Christmas season with the ones you love.
Scholastic has some of the best books. I love this book that talks about about how Jesus was once a baby like our very own baby. The story shows a new mother telling her precious new baby the story of the night Jesus was born and how it correlates to our own birth. I loved the adorable illustrations and while the book is religious in the story it also is a beautiful testament to the unconditional love of parents.
My kids are 14 and 16 and I want to read them this book right now!
