Build Your Own Bethlehem


Here are all the characters and then some for building your own nativity scene! Each figure is yours to pop loose and set up as the days of Christmas unfold. This beautiful, full-color activity book (the pop-out figures are found inside) suggests eight occasions, from Christmas until Candlemas a full 40 days for using the figures to tell a portion of the nativity gospels. The art of Gertrud Mueller Nelson and the sturdy pop-out figures truly bring the Christmas stories to life.
There’s the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph. There’s the stable with scampering mice and cooing doves that sit in the rafters. There’s the ox and ass and a flock of sheep accompanied by shepherds and their faithful dog. There’s an angel, of course, and a star. Epiphany’s three holy kings, Caspar, Melchior and Balthasar, are here too. And there are surprises the gospel’s senior citizens, Anna and Simeon, who wait 40 days to meet their newborn Lord.
