Experience the wonder of the very first Christmas with this magical changing-picture book.

The classic Christmas nativity story is stunningly illustrated by evocative pastel artwork depicting angels, shepherds, and wise men arriving in Bethlehem to share the magic of the birth of Jesus. Lift the gatefold flaps to change the pictures and watch the story unfold along the way.

About the Author:

Sophy Williams lives in Wiltshire, England, with her husband, Mark Robertson (also an illustrator), her two lively sons, Oscar and Leo, and a scraggy black cat. Some of Sophy’s childhood was spent living in Singapore, Hong Kong, and the Middle East, and her illustrations are often influenced by these far-flung locations.

From School Library Journal:

K Up–This lovely presentation of the Nativity story includes four “changing-pictures,” which are created by overlaying two images divided into vertical slats. In this case, the images change when a flap is opened. Williams's pastel illustrations are both luminous and child-centric, conveying a sense of mystery, awe, and gentle humor. One of the strengths is the work of the unnamed adaptor, who tells the story in an accessible voice. While many toy-movable books aren't appropriate for a library setting, this one is sturdier than most, and could be used in a religious holiday program.Mara Alpert, Los Angeles Public Library
