From the Book Back
“Knock, knock, knock,” was the sound made by the pounding of Joseph’s hand on the innkeeper’s door one night long ago. “No, no, no,” was the innkeeper’s answer to the request for a room. So Joseph led his young wife, Mary, who was soon to have a baby, to a barn near the inn. They spent the night there, lulled by the rhythm of the sounds of the sleeping animals. That night a very special baby was born to Mary. When Jesus Was Born is the story of that night and the birth of Jesus. A talk-together book, it is written so that parents may read it to their very young children, adding details of the Savior’s birth. The wonder of that marvelous, mysterious night comes alive with every reading.
