Review and Giveaway: Tiny Baby Jesus

Tiny feet of Jesus,
kicking up a storm.
Angels circling round his bed
keep him safe and warm.
Now those feet are bigger,
walking on the sea,
leaving us his footsteps, saying,
"Come and follow me!"





When we celebrate Christmas at our house, we don't simply celebrate the birth of Jesus. There is more to the story and to the eternal hope that we have through the death and resurrection of our Lord. For this reason, I was pleased to review Tiny Baby Jesus.

While reading Tiny Baby Jesus together this Christmas season, children and families can celebrate the gift of Jesus from head to tiny toes. As they turn the pages, they will discover the wonder of hands that develop into those of a carpenter and swaddled shoulders that grow to carry the weight of all mankind. Readers can share in the humble birth of tiny baby Jesus while remembering the life and teachings of the grown savior.

Tiny Baby Jesus is written by award-winning author Dandi Daley Mackall and illustrated by Julia Noonan. “I don’t think we can talk about Baby Jesus enough—to our children, to our neighbors, or to ourselves,” says Dandi Daley Mackall.”


Dandi Daley Mackall is the author of more than 400 books, including several titles for Zonderkidz such as The Legend of St. Nicholas, The Gift of the Christmas Cookie, the Ali Cat I CAN READ™ series, and the That’s Nat! early reader series. Dandi is the recipient of the 2009 Helen Keating Ott Award for Outstanding Contribution to Children's Literature from the Church and Synagogue Library Association (CSLA). Dandi and her husband, Joe, both write from rural Ohio, where they’re blessed with three children and a variety of horses, dogs, and cats. Visit http://www.dandibooks.com/ for more information.

I am babysitting some kids who come from a totally unchurched family. I would like to give this to them for Christmas. The kids and parents would learn about Jesus because the parents would have to read it to the kids.

Brianne said...

I would love to have this book to share with my two small children. I've been looking for a way to "introduce" them to Jesus in a way they can understand, and this seems like a really great way that they could grasp - especially since they're so young themselves!

I have a book-aholic 2 year old, and with his love of books this would be a wonderful addition to the christmas season. I would be great to be able to share this with our toddler class at church.

I think it will give my two girls a good story about the real meaning of christmas

While my kids know that Jesus is the reason we celebrate Christmas, having good books to help reinforce it is important. Looks like a beautiful book to share with my children.

This would be a great addition to our Christmas book collection. Most of our books are about the commercial side of Christmas (santa, elves, reindeer, etc.)

I would love to use this book as a Christmas present for my nephew and niece. Sort of an undercover way to share Jesus with them without being offensive!

I moved over 2,500 miles away from my only grandson, Antonio 4, in July because of a job situation (being laid off). His parents are not ones to talk to him about Jesus. Now I talk to him on Skype for a few hours a week where we can see each other at the same time. I think this book would be a great tool to read it to him while we talk on Skype and he can follow along with me. He loves books and this would be a meaningful time for us both. Thank you!

This would be nice for my daughter

Danielle a.k.a Yellie said...

I would like to win this book because it's very easy for children (and adults too) to get so wrapped up in the excitement of Christmas and not focus fully on the real reason for it. I also think that this would be great for my children to really realize that Jesus was fully human and I think that would allow them to more easily identify with Him and His life.
