In Where Jesus Slept by Norma Lewis, and illustrated by Katy Hudson, sweet, little baby Jesus is sleeping as the witnesses and participants to his birth are added to the story one by one with their relationships explained. Featuring heartwarming illustrations and an engaging repetition throughout, this book is a wonderful Christmas book for children ages 4 to 7 years.
"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.
