Where Jesus Slept by Norma Lewis Book Review + Giveaway

 * Disclosure of material connection- I received a copy of the book from the publisher via Flyby Promotions in exchange for my honest thoughts. I was not required to write a positive review and all opinions stated are 100% my own. 

About the book-

A new picture book about the Nativity of Jesus, with a lively cumulative story structure.
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 in and witnesses to the first Christmas. From Jesus sleeping sweetly to the wise men bringing gifts, this charming book reminds readers of the joyous event we celebrate at Christmastime. Children will love the charming illustrations and the engaging repetition in this Nativity tale. Ages 4-7.

My thoughts-

The first thing that grabbed my attention about Where Jesus Slept is the gorgeous cover. I loved the similar artwork throughout the book. I love books written in this particular style for pre-school and young school age readers. Each page building on the previous page and the repetition cumulative stories create using this pattern are great tools for kids this age to work on their reading skills. 
This book is a great way to introduce or remind your children of the story of the birth of Jesus and all of the events that took place in the days leading up to his birth, the tale of the Nativity. I think this would be a great book to wrap and place under the tree to be opened and read as a family Christmas eve. I recommend this book to anyone who has young children.
