And now that Halloween is over you know we are now starting Christmas season in ernest!



Synopsis:

“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.

Review:

This is a lovely, simple telling of the nativity, and Katy's bright illustrations will enchant children and adults alike! It is perfect for the target age group of 3-6 years old, who need a simple telling of the story, to truly understand the magnificence behind it. Kids ages 6-8 will enjoy reading the story to younger siblings, making it a lovely addition to your advent traditions! We highly recommend it!

About the Author:

Norma Lewis is the author of ten books. She lives in Grand Haven, MI, with a marmalade cat named Scalawag. They both love spending time with her six grandchildren, ranging in age from 
three to twenty.

About the Illustrator:

Katy was raised in Middlesbrough and started her Illustration career as a small child drawing on freshly emulsioned walls around the house! Her parents quickly dissuaded this medium and encouraged drawing with pencil and paper instead.

The idea stuck (the pencil was updated to an ink pot and pen in some cases) and after some lovely time at Art College and a degree in Illustration Katy is now a freelance Illustrator working at a desk in an old London library.
