Spiders Gift Christmas Story
A Christmas tale to enchant the child in all of us (but especially meant for children ages 4-6) Spider's Gift tells the story of how everyone has something valuable to offer the baby Jesus, as long as it's offered with love.
Author and zoologist Geraldine Ann Marshall spins this newest addition to the PaulineKids Tales and Legends series that includes a story, a prayer, and pages of facts and folklore about spiders.
Unlike other children's Christmas books, Spider's Gift tells the story of the nativity from the viewpoint of its tiniest participants: the cricket, the honeybee, and the spider. Read it together with your child and start a new family Christmas tradition!
