What's Christmas Baby About

Publisher Summary

This beautiful retelling of the Nativity story that celebrates the timeless joy of Christmas and of welcoming a new baby into the world is now available as a Classic Board Book! Have you heard? A baby is coming! Our baby is here? When Mary and Joseph’s child was born, the good tidings spread from the animals in the manger, to the shepherds in the fields, to the kings in distant lands, and even to the angels in the heavens! Now every time a baby is born, we celebrate and people travel from far and wide to greet the new baby–because every new baby is a small miracle. Filled with lyrical text and lush illustrations, this Classic Board Book is the perfect gift for baby’s first Christmas!
