Christian Christmas Books

For me Christmas means the celebration of the birth of Jesus, for my son is all about Santa at this time. However, I still integrate Jesus into his learning. As he grows I want him to know who Jesus is and when we celebrate his birthday. A perfect way to do that is with Christian Christmas Books. Here’s a few we’ve enjoyed this year!

Alanna Max

Hardcover

Bethlehem has never been so busy! Leah, the innkeepers daughter is rushed off her feet. Then in the starlight miracles begin. This beautiful, fresh new telling of the Nativity story, through the eyes of a young girl, brings a wonderful humanity to this familiar tale.

With a story as ancient and familiar as the Nativity, its easy to forget the human drama at its centre a young woman about to give birth for the first time, far away from home, her mother and the women who would usually help her; the older Joseph, concerned for his young wife. By telling the story through the eyes of young Leah, Margaret Bateson-Hill allows the reader to see the humanity of the ancient story.

The Nativitys innkeeper is often portrayed as a callous business man, turning the vulnerable couple away. But at the time of the census in Jerusalem, his rooms would have been packed with travellers not an ideal place for a young woman about to go into labour.

In Leahs Star, we see his humanity in offering Mary and Joseph a warm, private space in his stable. Here is a young woman, about to go into labour who is helped by Leah and the local midwife. These details bring the old familiar story to new life.
