Chapter One

One day God sent the angel Gabriel to Mary. "Don't be afraid!" he said. "God is pleased with you."

When at last they arrived in Bethlehem, Mary was very tired. They knocked at the door of an inn.

That night, with the donkey and cows standing close,

"Tonight a special baby has been born in Bethlehem.

in the stable - and baby Jesus lying in a manger.

At the time that Jesus was born, in a far country wise men were looking at the night sky.

"Look!" said one. "I've never seen that new star before."

So the wise men set out on a long, hard journey,

They gave him rich presents: gold, frankincense, and myrrh.

And just as God sent Jesus as the best gift of all.
