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!

Get to Know Mary, a book review

 

Most of us are familiar with Mary, the mother of baby Jesus, but we do not know how she lived or why she became the chosen one.  In “Get to Know Mary” we follow Mary’s life journey. We learn about who she was and follow major events in her life;  such as her engagement/marriage to Joseph, the birth of her first born son, her trip to Nazareth, and the home in which she made for her family.  “Get to Know Mary” is a fourth in the Get to know Children series written by Nancy I. Sanders.  This biography includes bright images and fun to know facts that will entertain your child’s mind.  There is also a timeline included in the back of the book.  This series makes for a great resource when learning about the great people of the Bible.  Very easy read and great for all ages.
