“Jesus, God’s Great Gift” is a Level 2 (Reading with Help) book in the “I Can Read!” series of books.


“This book starts with Mary and Joseph walking and walking. They try to find someplace to sleep but everywhere they knock on doors they don’t have any room. They try lots and lots of places. Someone lets them sleep in their barn though and that is where Jesus was born. There is a huge star that shines over the barn and that is how everyone knows Jesus is born. That is how people find him and come to see him. I liked that I knew most of the words in this book. I could read it almost all by myself. I liked the pictures in the book too. Some of the animals were kind of funny looking! That dog in there has super skinny legs and giant feet!”
