Today I have another wonderful children's book from Tommy Nelson!

The true Christmas story in a package kids will love.
This board book is a wonderful way to introduce the miraculous story of Christmas to young hearts. Sweet, rhyming text and adorable illustrations will engage children as parents and grandparents read about the nativity story. The padded cover is a soft but durable format for little hands, and the “carry-me” handle makes it easy for kids to tote this book to bed, to church, in the car, and on-the-go.
This is an adorable book for young children under 3, but slightly older kids will find it an easy reader, with only 20 pages, and one they can read to younger siblings. It's great for toddler Sunday time, be it in the babysitting room, or preschool Sunday School class, as well. The colors are bright, the drawings adorable and children will be enchanted with the simple tale! The book would be great for and Advent book, so that it could be read on Christmas Eve as well! It's the gift that keeps on giving!
