One of my favorite types of books to read my children are cumulative tales. These are books that build on the story as the pages progress. Each page repeats the previous page and then a new thought or sentence adds to the story.
I love these types of stories because they promote confident readers. Even if a child cannot “read” the page they feel as if they can. These stories are also a great way for children to see the whole picture come together at the end of the story.
I couldn't have been more delighted to read the new book by author Norma Davis called Where Jesus Slept. While teaching the story of our king's arrival we slowly gather around the manger scene.
We see all the pieces of the blessed night when Jesus was born from the angels singing in the fields to Jesus' humble beginnings the night he was born.
Illustrator Katy Hudson has captured our hearts in the faces and scenery she has so beautifully drawn on every page.
I enjoyed this book. I would recommend this book to anyone small children. What a great way to tell them the story of when Jesus was born. This book would make a fun way to add a family tradition of reading the Christmas story. With the repetition, your kiddos will be telling you the story in no time!
John 3:16 For God so loved the world that He sent His One and only Son that whoever believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life.
