Review: The Nativity

Title: The Nativity

By: Bethan Lycett and Hannah Stout

Price: £3.50 for 1, in a pack as low as £1 each

Published by: 10 of those

Useful for: children age 2-7

Best bit: the lovely artwork and simply, easy-to-read Christmas story including Simeon and Anna

Worst bit: The rhyme isn’t always a smooth as it could be, but still enjoyable.


This is a simple, Biblically accurate rhyming re-telling of the Christmas story, including Jesus being laid in a manger (but no mention of the stable) and Mary and Joseph taking their offering to the temple and meeting Simeon and Anna.  It’s short and simple, and is a good way to introduce the Christmas story to young children, and the artwork is lovely: clear, fun and giving lots of story details in a visual way, which is so essential for young children.

The book is also available as a board book and colouring book as well as in pack for as little as £1 per book!
