The gentle beauty of the story of the first Christmas is now available as a board book. With a simple, lyrical text and radiant artwork, this book is perfect for the youngest child to be a part of the wonder of the Nativity.
This board book does a fun job explaining all the animals who were present in the nativity scene and focusing on the birth of Jesus. I think it’s a great way to teach little ones about the nativity!
This is a super cute board book introduction to the nativity, focusing on the elements most relatable to children: animals, mother and baby. The illustrations are cute and I love the rhymes and the simple way this book introduces the meaning of Christmas.
