During a time of year when folks are hustling around buying gifts, wrapping presents, and decorating their homes with lights, it’s nice to slow down and take a moment to read with the children about the deeper reasons for the season we celebrate. God’s Son, Jesus, came to be here as a Savior for all mankind. Learning more about HIM is what it’s all about. You can share that important truth with your children in an easy way with tools like this wonderful children’s book by author, Norma Lewis titled: Where Jesus Slept.
In this beautiful hardcover children’s book, you can present those concepts to the kids in a fun, lighthearted presentation as this writer shared a poem style feel to the book similar to another beloved series …There Was an Old Woman Who Swallowed a Fly. My kids were so tickled to hear Where Jesus Slept written in a similar fashion that they asked to read it again and again!
We love the imagery in the book as the illustrator did a phenomenal job giving sweetness to the face of baby Jesus. She also managed to breathe life and character into the eyes of the animals surrounding the child in the manger. Each page is in full color and brilliantly drawn to give respect and glory to our newborn king and Savior – Jesus.
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.
