Join Mary, Joseph, the shepherds and the angels as they celebrate the birth of Jesus. This softy-illustrated book teaches young readers about Jesus' birth and the real meaning of Christmas. ''Happy Birthday, Jesus! We celebrate Your birth in the town of Bethlehem when You came down to earth. Your mother, Mary, held you. A manger was Your bed. The cows and sheep were quiet as she gently kissed Your head. Your father, Joseph, marveled. He knew You were the One. For God had sent a Savior—His one and only Son. The shepherds had been watching their flocks that quiet night. When an angel appeared, they were terrified with fright. "Do not be afraid. For I bring to you good news: Today a Savior has been born!' And then the shepherds knew. Happy Birthday, Jesus! We give You all the praise. We celebrate Your birthday on this glorious Christmas day.'' Rhyming text coupled with gorgeous artwork will make this story a family favorite.
