Ordinary Baby, Extraordinary Gift Book Review

Author: Gloria Gaither
Making use of her song Ordinary Baby, she not only tells the story of the birth of Christ but explains why it was necessary that He come, starting in the beginning of time in the garden. She goes on to explain the possible reason God came to us as a baby.
"That's the way he planned it, maybe, so that we would come to him and not be afraid."

Publisher: Zonderkidz, The Children's Group of Zonderman Publishing House

Copyright Date: 2000

Illustrated by Barbara Hranilovich
Ms. Hranilovich has won numerous awards for both fine art and illustration. Her artwork is imaginative and beautifully colorful. She creates a fascinating portrayal of the character in each face - even the animals. Each illustration is certain to capture the imagination of readers of all ages.

40 lovely pages

Includes an audio cassette
Gloria Gaither tells the story as only the author. Children will love listening to the cassette when their parents aren't available to read to them. Also on the cassette is the song Ordinary Baby performed by a choir of sweet children's voices.

Suggested for children, ages 4 to 8
I think the parents and grandparents will love it too.

I bought this book as a Christmas gift but I have enjoyed it so much that I may have purchase another copy for the gift and keep this one for myself. It is a heart-warming Christmas story that is likely to become a family tradition. I think this is the perfect way to introduce a child to the gospel of Jesus Christ in a simple, easy to understand story.

Ordinary Baby, Extraordinary Gift is available through Amazon.com.
