In the days leading up to Christmas, Mary and Joseph's path to Bethlehem is fraught with difficulties, but as the stories in this book reveal, a small miracle happens on each day. The story of each miracle brings us a little closer to Christmas, until we finally reach the stable in Bethlehem where the light in the lantern is waiting in anticipation of the Christ Child's birth.
With 28 individual stories, this book may be used as an 'Advent Calendar', with the first week's stories relating to the mineral world, the second week's stories to the plant world, followed by the animal kingdom and finally to the human beings.
