Itsy Bitsy Christmas by Max Lucado


I was quite surprised when I opened this chunky, board book.  My general thought a board book geared to preschoolers.  This book aimed at older 5+ readers. I work in an elementary school so lots of writing on a page scares young readers off.  However, it is an excellent book.  Just not what I was expecting for a board book.  The Christmas story is all through out the book to say the least.  They mice, Itsy and Bitsy go looking for the King; much to their surprise and all the other barn animals they find the King at the end of the day right in their stable home.  The pictures are big and bold and what you'd expect of a cardboard book.  Beautiful story and message.  A plus for the Christmas season, but don't let the board book fool ya.  Yes I'll add this to the church library.

Book Description

"The King has come! Even for a little one like me!"

Do you ever feel like you are too small or too ordinary? This is just how Itsy and Bitsy feel. When these two charming little mice hear that a King is coming to Bethlehem, they set off with great enthusiasm to find Him. Along the way, they are met with discouraging words telling them they are too little and unimportant for any king. Just when Itsy and Bitsy begin to believe they really aren't big enough for the new King, they learn that Christ the King has indeed come for everyone.

Crafted by bestselling author and master storyteller Max Lucado, Itsy Bitsy Christmas helps children understand God's great love and know that He sent His Son for all of us--little or big, young or old.
