sshh…don’t wake the baby

I love Christmas. I truly love the nativity story so much. That Jesus who made everything, became nothing, became a baby, became poor, became a servant, so that we could become friends of God. And i’ve loved sharing this story with my 1 and a half year old issy. They are sponges even at such a young age, i love praying with her and chatting to her about God and the meaning of Christmas, the true magic behind Christmas. It’s hard to avoid santa, we actually took issy to see him this afternoon – it was cute. She loves Christmas trees and lights, and opening her chocolate advent every morning, and i’m sure she’ll love opening her presents on Christmas morning. But I’m looking forward to her grasping the true magic of Christmas!

Here are my favourite books that really open up the story of Jesus’ birth for little people. Would love to hear your favourites too…

Sshh… Don’t Wake baby

Got given this at one of the baby groups that we go to – It’s really beautifully illustrated and really gets the imagination going that Jesus was actually a baby!

A star so bright – A Christmas Tale

I love this book – I found it in a charity shop. It has twinkling lights and includes lots of animals that see that bright star on the first Christmas night
