Product Description

Details

'Once upon a time, perhaps two thousand years ago, or maybe only yesterday, a man stood under a tree and waited. As he waited, people began to arrive: old people, young people, children, parents with babies, and even a couple of dogs. They settled on the cool grass under the shade of the great tree, all around the Storyteller, for that is who the man was. Once a year, everyone gathered round to hear him tell this story.'


The storyteller's tale is one we think we all know: the story of Mary and Joseph and the birth of a very special baby. But do we know it? This unique retelling weaves ancient nativity legends -- now largely forgotten -- into the familiar narrative.


Its short chapters make it ideal for nightly Advent readings or bedtime storytelling. Children will rediscover the wonder and sparkle of this great story by hearing it from some less common angles. Even parents will find it both moving and surprising, and may see the traditional narrative through fresh eyes.
