Review of "Where Jesus Slept" by Norma Lewis

I am always excited to read new children's christmas picture books.  One thing I really enjoyed about this one is how they picked up the familiar 'House That Jack Built' type rhyme to create the story of Jesus' birth.

I think it was really clever how Norma has done it and she really pulled it off well!  It gives the story a fresh feel, plus is an excellent book for reading aloud because of this pattern.  

Here's an excerpt: "This is Mary there is the stable that sheltered the cow that shared the straw that lined the bed where Jesus slept."

My only slight complaint is the rhyming isn't as good as in the House that Jack built, there is a bit of rhyme in this one but not as much.  It still seems to work okay reading aloud though.

The illustrations by Katy Hudson are just adorable too.

This is a must have to add to your christmas picture book collection.  The children will love it!
