‘Memories of the Manger’ Story Worth Telling

51hpvempral_sl160_.jpgI got our all of our children’s Christmas books a week or so ago and we’ve been reading them every night with my son. I particularly like Memories of the Manger. It’s a story you probably know. One that you may have already read to your children during the Christmas season. But, this book is sweet in that it tells the story of Jesus’ birth through the farm animals that live in Bethlehem.

A white dove narrates the story as he delights in telling the story of how Mary and Joseph arrived at the manger and what it was like when the baby was born. Some of the animals ask the dove questions that your children might be asking and the dove graciously answers.

Beautifully illustrated and told, this is a book worth having in your home to read and reread each year at Christmas.

    I just came across this site. I’ve been looking for a decent storybook telling the Christmas story for some time now. I’d really like to read it to my son who’s 20 months. I’m going to check the bookstore for this book this weekend when I go to the city. It sounds really cute! Thanks
