About this Book:
This book is a wonderful opportunity to enter into the world of Christmas with the children in your lives. Join two “junior reporters” as they travel back in time to interview Mary, Joseph, the shepherds, and Wise Men on the night of the Savior’s birth. Their “news report” will delight young readers, while teaching them the true meaning of our Christmas celebration! For ages 5-8.
“Around my home, we frequently speculate on how Jesus might have been received had He been born into today's culture. You can bet your mistletoe that Jesus' birth might have been covered on CNN if the right media source been tipped off in advance. A fun new children's Christmas book, A Christmas Interview: Reporting Live from Bethlehem! gives kids the chance to imagine what reporters might have asked had they been on hand for the big event in Bethlehem. The book, translated from its original Japanese version written by Father Yoshitaka Yoshiike, accompanies two roving reporters on their time-travel journey back to the original site of the birth of our Savior. The kids have questions for each of the major players, including St. Joseph, Mary, the shepherd witnesses and even the Wise Men. Expressive illustrations by Fujio Tsuchiya lend to the fun of this fast paced, yet scripturally based, narrative on the nativity. The book might also lend itself to a dramatic representation by a family or classroom wanting to act out the events of that first Christmas.” – Lisa M. Hendey
