Mortimer’s Christmas Manger by Karma Wilson

December 3, 2010 - 10:55 pm No Comments

Mortimer comes across a house just his size, but there are a bunch of people statues in it, so he drags them all out to give himself more room. There is even a tiny baby statue laying in a “nest” of straw, so he takes that one out too so that he will have a comfy place to sleep. Mortimer comes back the next night and all of the people are back in the house, so he has to drag them all back out again. He goes back again, just in time to hear the story of Christmas being read and he realizes that the statue people that he has been dragging out of his new-found house were actually people from the Christmas story. Both you and your kids will love this book…it has become a Christmas tradition at our house.
