"A Christmas Prayer" by Amy Parker

"A Christmas Prayer" is a sweet poem about a child who goes through each figure in the nativity and give thanks to God for their role in the birth of Christ. It is perfect for smaller children, with its soft pastel illustrations, simple rhymes, and inspiring message.
I really liked how this book puts emphasis on the truly important gifts of Christmas, something all parents have struggled to reinforce in their children.
My son liked how the figures in the story (Mary, Joseph, the angel, etc) were represented by toys. He wanted to get his toys and act it out as well. My son is 3, and after reading through it with me a few times was able to remember enough to recite parts with me, which I really enjoyed.
We plan to make this story a new part of our family traditions at Christmas time.
