“The Busy Christmas Stable” tells the story of the first Christmas in a fun and interactive way. There are levers at the bottom that you push in the direction of the arrow to make people such as the wise men, Joseph, the innkeeper, and others pop up.


“I know the story about Christmas, but this book has different things. I like pushing those things on the bottom to the sides to make the people pop up in the air. That was fun! I liked counting the animals too like it said to do. My favorite picture was the one when baby Jesus popped up.”

Parent’s comments:

“The Busy Christmas Stable” would be a fun way to introduce the story of the first Christmas to a young child. The text is simple and is easy for a preschool age child to comprehend. The book is very interactive as there is a lever to move on each page, sometimes accompanied by a question. My son enjoyed this book and it will be fun to read again and again throughout the Christmas season.
