Where Jesus Slept: A Sweet Nativity Story for Little Ones

I’ve always loved to collect Christmas picture books. I began before I had children when I was an elementary school teacher. Once I had my own children, I’ve slowly added to the collection year after year. Even though my kids are getting older, I’m still collecting Christmas picture books so I’m always on the lookout for new ones to add to my collection.

“This is the bed where Jesus slept. This is the straw that lined the bed where Jesus slept. This is the cow that shared the straw that lined the bed where Jesus slept….”

Thus begins Where Jesus Slept– a sweet Christmas picture book that I’ve recently had the opportunity to review. It’s a story in which each phrase builds on the previous one. Children enjoy stories written in this style because they can remember each previous phrase and repeat it with you as you read the story aloud to them.

In each new phrase, a key word is written in larger, bolder type. With smaller children, you could point out the words as you read the story aloud so that they can begin to recognize them and read them with you as the story builds.

The one complaint that I have about the story is that it places the wise men in the stable where Jesus was born. This doesn’t particularly fit with the biblical account, although I know it’s typical for wise men to be included in a nativity scene.

Where Jesus Slept with its building story that will capture the interest of young kids as you read it aloud and its colorful illustrations is a great book to add to any Christmas picture book collection. You can find the book on Amazon here.
