The Very First Christmas Stocking & the Gifts of the 7 Coins by Terry Paul LaFargue

Here's a different look at the birth of Jesus.  Instead of the three kings, a family of shepherds come to visit...

Dog Ear Publishing and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It has been published.

I was expecting the traditional story with a few additions but this is a totally different look.  When a shooting star lands in the meadow where two children were watching the sheep and it turns out to be jet like star that two angels are riding, you know it's going to be different.

It's a good tale with lots of lessons to learn on the way.  The coins of this story are positive natural attributes we carry in our hearts.  With angels, stars, coins, Christmas stockings and a pot luck dinner, there's a new flavor to the birth of Christ.  I couldn't get used to calling Mary Ms. Mary but that's me.  I guess I'm a little too entrenched in the old version.

This would be good for young ones.  They will enjoy the boy angel that keeps getting in trouble.  They'll also learn about skills it's good to have.  Why not give it a try?
