Book Review + Giveaway ~ Itsy Bitsy Christmas by Max Lucado

About the book:

“The King has come! Even for a little one like me.”

Do you ever feel like you are too small or too ordinary? That is just how Itsy and Bitsy feel. When these two charming little mice hear that a King is coming to Bethlehem, they set off with great enthusiasm to find Him. Along the way, they are met with discouraging words telling them they are too little and unimportant for any king. Just when Itsy and Bitsy begin to believe that they really aren’t big enough for the new King, they learn that Christ the King has indeed come for everyone.

Crafted by master storyteller Max Lucado, Itsy Bitsy Christmas helps children understand God’s great love and know that He sent His Son for all of us—little or big, young or old.

My thoughts:

If you are familiar with the work of Max Lucado you already know that this is going to be a fabulous book. We happened to receive it when my four year old grandson was at the house and we wound up reading it together over and over and over.

The pictures are beautiful and the words easily flow off of the tongue. But the most important part is that the message of the book comes through. The dialogue of the two cute little mice remind reader that God's love is for everyone no matter how big or small you may be. 

We plan on adding this to our stash of Christmas books that we bring out each season. I think it would delight the younger children in your family as well.
