The Blessed – Diane Bostick

An interesting, quirky, tale for younger readers, telling the tale of a reunion for some of the animals that were present at the birth of Jesus. They know they all played an important role in that special night, some showing a little more pride than others.

Wisdom abounds, and that pride is lessened as their discussion leads them the realisation that in fact all are important, all are chosen and all are special. That everyone has a role to play in honouring Jesus.

The story echoes the birth, life and death of Christ, showing how His sacrifice means that we can all be free.

With lovely illustrations to accompany the words, this tale will warm the heart.
