Where Jesus Slept by Norma Lewis

61xaklo-zpl-_sy498_bo1204203200_About the book:

“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.

In Emilee’s opinion:

I loved reading this book to my children. It reminded me of “There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly” by Pam Adams. It was repetitive and easy to remember the verses. This book will definitely be one of my top Christmas books. This year we are reading a Christmas book a day starting on December 1st. I felt that Where Jesus Slept would be the perfect book to start our countdown to Christmas. The illustrations were beautiful and perfectly captured each verse. I definitely recommend this book especially if you have children from age one to seven or eight. It helped my six year old recall the same verses so he was able to read it to the family. I loved it all the way through the entire book!
