Review & Giveaway of Where Jesus Slept
My Review: This is the cutest Christmas story book I've seen in a long time! The repetition of the rhyme and building of it is so appealing to little ones. They can easily and quickly memorize the repetitive verses and say them along with whoever is reading it to them. I shared this with several little ones, from babies to older preschoolers. The youngest ones enjoyed listen to the verses: "This is the bed where Jesus slept. This is the straw that lined the bed where Jesus slept. This is the stable that sheltered the cow that shared the straw that lined the bed where Jesus slept......" The youngest ones had a fun time looking at the pictures while I made the sounds of the animals in illustrations and pointed out certain things illustrated while repeating the verse to them which made them laugh! Older ones were able to engage in the story while pointing to and naming parts of illustrations and asking questions. The illustrations are absolutely beautiful. They could be framed paintings in an art museum. They did not include too many things so that the children were overwhelmed.
