Where Jesus Slept Hardcover – Book Review




I love all kinds of Christmas theme books and this one did not disappoint me in the least.  I plan to use this one as part of my nativity display this Christmas

The structure of the traditional poem “This Is the House that Jack Built” is used as the premise for this Nativity story.
The opening pages show Joseph leading Mary and their donkey toward the town of Bethlehem, with a verse from Luke about the birth of Jesus as the text. The following pages begin the repeating pattern with the refrain, “This is the bed where Jesus slept,” followed by “the straw that lined the bed,” “the cow that shared the straw,” and so on. All the phrases repeat with each new character, including Mary, the baby, a lamb, an angel, the shepherds, and the wise men, and a final page includes a picture of a smiling baby Jesus and another Bible verse. The double-page spreads have a greeting-card prettiness, with static poses; the character of Mary looks somewhat unfinished.
