The Christmas Story

Rating

Product Description:

PreS-Gr 1-Smith creates the world around the Christmas story including the Immaculate Conception, the Nativity, Epiphany, and the Holy Family's settling in Nazareth in LEGO blocks (the LEGO group does not sponsor, author, or endorse the book). Colour pictures depict each scene with the text at the bottom of the page. The pregnant "brick" version of Mary, the angel Gabriel, and block-headed baby Jesus may bring a few unintended giggles from readers. A letter to parents from Rev. Wanda Lundry, director, Doctor of Ministry Programme at New York Theological Seminary, discusses the issues that arise from the Christmas story in more detail-such as Mary's immaculate conception and King Herod's orders to kill all children younger than two. Not for everyone, but definitely a different take on the familiar story.-Diane Olivo-Posner, Los Angeles Public Library α(c) Copyright 2011.
