A Child's Christmas Counting Book: Guest of the Animals

(2 reviews) Write a Review

Little ones love Christmas, and they love to count. These two pleasures come together in this delightfully illustrated new title from author/illustrator team Paul Thigpen and John Folley.
In A Child’s Christmas Counting Book, the rollicking rhyme and alliteration of Thigpen’s charming verse about the birth of Jesus will entertain young ears, while Folley's magical illustrations, rooted deeply in traditional sacred art, will engage young and old alike.
With this companion to A Child’s Christmas ABC Book, also by Thigpen and Folley, you and your child can recall together the Nativity story as you count from 1 to 10. From “1 little Boy” to “10 tuckered travelers” sleeping in the nearby inn, the masterful craftsmanship of this book’s words and images will make it, like its companion book, a Christmas family favorite for generations to come.

    Beautiful follow up to the Original Alphabet Book

    This follow up to Paul Thigpen;s "A Child;s Christmas ABC Book" is again full of illustrator John Folley;s beautiful artwork. It is poetically and cleverly written in verse that flows and engages. My children enjoy both the art and the way in which the birth of Christ is told. This will become a regular in our home during Advent and Christmas.
