Juvenile Nonfiction/Christmas (ages 4-8)
WHEN MARY AND JOSEPH CAME TO BETHLEHEM,
THE INNKEEPER SAID, "THERE IS NO ROOM."
WHERE WOULD THEY SLEEP?
Mary and Joseph are on their way to Bethlehem on
Christmas night. Jesus will be born soon, and they need
your help to find 48 hidden objects along the way!
Ready, Set, Find as you read the story of Christmas
in this interactive board book for young readers.
Ready, Set, Find Christmas is an adorable board book designed especially for the preschool set. The story is compiled from the account of Mary and Joseph traveling to Bethlehem and the events leading up to the birth of Christ and shortly after found in Luke 2:1-16 and Matthew 2:1-12. The story is brief so young attention spans will be able to sit for the whole tale.
What I really like is how the book incorporates interactive seek and find on each of the pages. Each time we have read through the book my grandson has enthusiastically said, "Again! Again!" You would think that it would almost be a one time thing but apparently not. In fact he just beams with pleasure as he's able to quickly point to each object.
If you have a preschooler in your home I would recommend this cute board book for your Christmas story times. It is sturdy, colorful, short, and interactive, all the things that make reading a book to a wiggly little one a pleasure.
