Bethlehem's Baby includes author's notes for a reason. The author, me, wanted to know more than just "Jesus is the reason for the season." And whenever I said "I don't know," to the kids, I wanted a way to add to it, "Let's find out."
Bethlehem's Baby is #6 in the Five Minute Bible Story(TM) Series from Cape Arago Press.
