The Littlest Christmas Kitten- a book review

This is such an adorable book and a neat way to retell the majestic story of Jesus’ birth.  In the Littlest Christmas Kitten, a mother cat searches for her lost kitten in the stable just before Mary and Joseph arrive.  Yes!  The story is told in the mother cat’s point of view and we discover what it was like for the animals to witness the birth of the promised child.  As mother cat is frantically looking for her lost kitten, Mary and Joseph walk into the stable, and she quickly hides in a nearby manger.   There she finds her lost kitten and rests til the manger is needed for sweet baby Jesus.  The hay that is a bed for a kitten is also soft enough for the newborn king.  Sounds come to life in the stable as the animals rejoice and the angels sing.  The words and images entangle together and will grab hold of the reader’s emotions bringing life to the story as it is read.  A feline secret is shared at the end of the tale and will bring light of wonder to the littlest reader.  The Littlest Christmas Kitten will delight readers of all ages!

The First Christmas Ever- a book review

The First Christmas Ever takes us back  to the night that baby Jesus was born.  Discover why there was no room in the inn for Mary and Joseph and how the shepherds and the wise men learned of the birth of God’s son.  The story doesn’t stop there; ZonderKidz shares details of Jesus’ life as he was growing up.  This is a great book for children ages 4-8.  My children really enjoyed the fun illustrations by Dennis Jones.  My daughter A (10) liked the style of Jones drawings, as they resemble caricatures.  I recommend this book as a must read for the upcoming Christmas season.
