The ornament of baby Jesus represented the story of how Jesus was born in a stable and only had hay for his bed. The stars throughout the tree represent the stars that the 3 wise men followed to find Jesus and bring him gifts.
As the story goes on each ornament is explained. The child begins to see a Christmas tree is more than just a tree with pretty objects but that it can hold meaning too. It helps remind small children that there is more to Christmas than just the presents. There is a much bigger meaning.
I think Crystal Bowman did a great job at telling Jesus, Me and My Christmas Tree in a way that is entertaining to the children while also teaching them. Even though it’s a board book my 5 year old daughter still enjoyed it. She loved how Claudine Gevry made every page colorful and engaging. She loved how the book was in the shape of a tree and as you turned each page more of the tree was decorated, till the end when the whole tree was decorated!
This is a wonderful book for the preschooler crowd to kindergarten crowd. The book is colorful, thoughtful and teaches a lesson. You can pick up your own copy on Amazon.
