I can remember hearing Christmas stories since I was little. The most famous is the birth of baby Jesus. Every single one followed the same people and the same strategy. I really wanted to see a different perspective. Plus, any time you can remind people what Christmas is really about, is the point of the season!
I found this book awesome. It is so nice to see the story from a different perspective. Someone who had a big role in that night and how it went down. The Innkeeper obviously has a very big heart. He was even willing to let out his own room for someone to stay in.
You will notice that the story is very similar but I feel you learn so much more in this version then you do the original well known one. The writing is fabulous. It is so easy to follow the story and the words are easy enough for my 10 year old, to read on her own with just a bit of help.
My kids all seemed to enjoy this story, even my 13 year old who always has a YA book in her hands. They also love the artwork involved. The designs are super simple but the perfect style for a book with this content. I think I just found our new Christmas Eve before bedtime book! Want to check out this book?
