As they travelled the distance To the manger, they came And knew this was the baby That the angels proclaimed. He was wrapped oh, so tightly, And in a manger he lay. They bowed down and worshipped Him, Then went on their way. A miracle from God! They had just seen His Son. They immediately knew They must tell everyone. God sent us His Son, And to give Him the glory, We must be like the shepherds And share this good story.

I would definitely recommend this book and look forward to making it a Christmas tradition in my home. The rhyming and lyrical quality of the text makes the wording simple and easy to understand; but it's also a powerful presentation of the gospel. The art work is also beautiful. What WILL you give HIM this season?
