Where Jesus Slept review and free gift


This children's book is in the genre of Green Eggs and Ham in that it builds on the previous page until the final page has every phrase. I think this book would make a great children's skit. I want to work on it for 2017 - have each kid assigned a phrase telling the whole story of Jesus' birth. Just an idea.

“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.

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.
Illustrated by Katy Hudson.

  1. Sounds like a good book! I love the skit idea! Maybe we could pull together and have our kids perform at some neighborhood parks...send out invitations, have some snacks, share about Jesus! Erika_unt@yahoo.com
