Make & Play Nativity by Joey Chou, published by Nosy Crow is a perfect activity book for young children at Christmas.
The nativity is probably one of the most told stories in the world and here is one with a difference. This sturdy, spiral bound board book contains press out pieces with clear and easy to follow instructions to make your very own nativity scene to help you tell the story.
There are pieces to create all the characters children will recognise as well as a manger, animals and trees to help set the scene. Beautifully illustrated with excellent attention to detail (I love that the backs of all the pieces have been illustrated separately and not just copied from the front) the pieces work so well as small world toys as well as a stand alone scene.
Once you’ve read the Christmas story and built your scene this book also contains suggestions for activities and the words to well known songs. A great way to keep little ones busy and get into the Christmas spirit.
An innovative and stunning book, thoughtfully produced to the high standard we’ve come to expect from Nosy Crow. This would make an excellent gift and is sure to provide enjoyment at Christmas for many years.
