Children will learn the true meaning of Christmas through individual stories of the characters present at Jesus’ birth—the Donkey, Cow, Sheep, Shepherd, Angel, Camel, Wise Men, Joseph, and of course, baby Jesus. On each of the nine days leading up to Christmas, introduce the story of a new character, and share a new appreciation for the advent season.
This book can be used with any nativity set that includes the nine pieces listed above. Also available separately: The Donkey in the Living Room Nativity Set (978-1433684487), which includes a keepsake box filled with the picture book AND nativity pieces to be wrapped and slowly opened as each part of the story is read.
