The TRUE meaning of CHRISTmas. The story of our first Christmas when our sweet baby Jesus was born. Jesus is Born helps tell the story of the nativity from the angel Gabriel’s message to the Virgin Mary to the miracle of Christmas. The birth of Jesus in a manager in Bethlehem. And the beautiful bright star that led the shepherds and three wise men to our beautiful baby Jesus.
This is a timeless and complete retelling of this beautiful story of love and faith and the HEART of CHRISTmas. And now some really good news! While this story is amazing and beautiful in its own accord, it is brought to life. With these amazing illustrations so full of detail and emotion. Jesus is Born will be a true family treasure that can be passed down from generation to generation.
Some of my favorite Christmas memories are with my grandmother. And in Babushka, grandmother is the main character in this book. While this is the eve of their very first Christmas, granny is cleaning up when she sees a bright star. And three wise men show up and ask Babushka to come with them on their travels. They are following the bright star in search of the newborn babe, the Prince of Peace, Jesus.
But, Babushka is worried about getting the house straight. And she is just to busy to leave with presents for baby Jesus. But the next day when she goes to follow the wise men, she can not find them. What she does find along her journey reminds her that NOTHING is more important through the holiday season than taking time to show love and compassion for everyone that you may cross paths with. This is a beautiful Russian story that will make your heart all warm and full of Christmas love.
