This rhyming book with warm, quirky illustrations makes a beautiful Christmas gift for children who are 4-7 years old.

In this story of a Christmas nativity play, Mary thinks she is the star of the show. However, as the play goes on, she finds that every scene has been stolen by an unlikely character or object, such as a tent, a phone and a lion!

With the help of the narrator, Mary realises that each one actually teaches us a profound truth about Jesus. The tent teaches us that Jesus came to live among us humbly; the phone teaches us that Jesus came to connect us to God; and the lion shows us that Jesus is the king of the universe!

Along with Mary, readers will see that Jesus is the true star of the show and that it is wonderful to know him.
