About the book:
“This is the bed where Jesus slept. This is the straw that lined the bed where Jesus slept.” From here, the story builds with each spread, adding a new element and explaining the relationships among the participants and witnesses to the first Christmas. From Jesus sleeping sweetly to the wise men bringing gifts, this charming book reminds readers young and not-so-young of the joyous event we celebrate at Christmastime. Children will love the delightful illustrations and the engaging repetition in this cumulative tale.

This is such an adorable book. The illustrations bring it to life. The way it is written kept my daughter engaged and she loved learning the story of Jesus and how he was born. It is an easy read for parents like me that do not have a lot of time to sit and read longer stories. It is a great book and just in time for Christmas!
