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.
