Publisher's Summary

Rediscover the Christmas story.
These tales look at the real Christmas story by those who saw it. Four short stories look at the story of the birth of baby Jesus as seen by the donkey in the stable, the shepherds on a hillside, the star gazing down on the little town of Bethlehem, and the baby's mother, Mary.
Based loosely on the Bible story about the arrival of the baby Jesus, these tales take a refreshing look at the nativity story at the heart of Christmas.
Develop your children's imagination, allowing them to create pictures in their minds and travel to a distant land.
A sweet and simple story of Christmas for children.

Four Precious Stories About the Birth of Jesus

"A Christmas Surprise" was such a wonderful audiobook. I loved it myself and can't wait until my grandchildren get to listen to it. Four different perspectives on the birth of baby Jesus. They were all so precious. I think I liked the donkey's story the best but they were all so neat. I myself will listen to this again because it made me feel good. This is what Christmas is all about to me. I love how it began. Just close your eyes and listen. Great writing by Jennifer Carter and the narration...

Jeffrey W. Goodrich did an outstanding job reading these stories. He has a delightful, pleasant voice that goes perfectly with the book. Through these two amazing artists, this is an excellent way to teach children about Jesus.
