My Review

This charming children’s book is the story of a sweet little boy named Jesús. Each day he prays for God to help him. He wants to have a part in his school nativity play. His innocent prayers and concerns are precious. He asks for help in learning all of the lines for the play. He thanks God for his scratchy costume that was carefully made for him. There are some unexpected moments during the performance and Jesus is afraid that he did something wrong.

Parents will appreciate the heart and meaning of the book and children will love the whimsical illustrations and childlike language. It’s the perfect time of year to read this book to your children.
