One Night on Earth is a new children's Bible story by Leanne Kilpatrick. This classic tale is revitalised in rhyme adding lyrical atmosphere that makes the reading and hearing of it a joy. These stories are a great way to introduce children to reading as the tales themselves are fascinating, often colourful, and feature compelling characters in situations that young minds will marvel at. Leanne has used a cheerful, involving rhyme style to craft the pace and depth of the narratives to thrilling effect and as such they are sure to be a hit with youngsters when read with adults, and by new readers enjoying their first complete books.
The angels sang in heaven,
A new day had begun.
God summoned the angel Gabriel
And said, “The time has come.
You must go on a journey,
You have some news to bear,
To a little town called Nazareth
And a young girl who lives there.”
With One Night on Earth Leanne retells the miraculous story of Jesus' birth in the famously unprepossessing surroundings and the visits by crook-wielding shepherds and star-struck magi – all warmly and brightly illustrated by Marilyn McCullough in a colourful and appealing style that children will love to explore.
Make sure you get Leanne's other title - Two by Two, the story of Noah's Ark.
