Itsy Bitsy Christmas by Max Lucado Review & Giveaway

Today I’m featuring another great Christmas story to read with your children. Itsy Bitsy Christmas is written by Max Lucado, one of my favorite authors (my girls have several of his books) and is a wonderful way to help your children connect with the story of Jesus’ birth.


The story is told from the unique perspective of two little mice named Itsy and Bitsy, who are on a mission to find the King that they’ve heard is coming to Bethlehem. While searching for the King, they are told over and over that they are too little and no king would want anything to do with them or Bethlehem. The story ends with them finding Jesus, the King, and realizing that He did indeed come for all of us- big and small.

As I was reading the story to Clara, I was happy to have a new way to present the story of Jesus’ birth and another opportunity to explain to her that Jesus came for everyone, including her. Max Lucado books never disappoint when it comes to helping children relate to God’s love toward us and I definitely recommend adding this one to your child’s library.

    My favorite Christmas Eve is when my husband and I walked around looking at Christmas lights and drinking hot cocoa.

  3. I remember Christmas Eve service with my Grandma and dad. They have since passed, but I will always remember the glow of the candles throughout the church along with Silent Night.

  4. One of my favorites is stringing popcorn and cranberries for the tree with my mom.
