Baby Jesus

by Karen Williamson, illustrations by Chris Embleton-Hall


Board book
Price: £3.99
Publisher:Candle Books imprint of Lion Hudson
Published:August 2012
An addition to the Baby Jesus books, this one with each page having a tab that sticks up to make turning the pages easier, but each tab is shaped to fit something from the pages picture. The illustrations are fresh and bright with some lovely additions like ‘Little Miss Muffet’ style spiders in some places and pastel girly butterflies in others along with cute bugs and bumblebee’s that though perhaps not entirely in tune with the story nonetheless make for a great fun book for little children to engage with. The story is simple but enjoyable to read and done in a fun font. On the whole a nice fresh addition to the Christmas Book market and at a nice price too.
