When a young boy moves cross-country to a new home just before Christmas, he feels lonely and homesick for his old friends. But his Primary teacher has an idea to help him feel loved and accepted. The other children in the class will take turns bringing different pieces of a nativity set to their new classmate and will offer their friendship by doing something to show how much they care. With delightful illustrations by Shawna J. C. Tenney, this charming story will inspire families to start their own Christmas tradition of a mismatched nativity.
A parents’ guide at the end of the book provides suggestions for activities that can be done individually or in Family Home Evening lessons to help children learn more about the participants in the first Christmas.
