I love Christmas and was delighted to come across this beautifully illustrated (by Bruno Merz) and wonderfully narrated book by Max Lucado. It is a wonderful story of love, determination, and a sense of belonging. It features two little mice who find themselves in the possession of some good news: The King is coming to Bethlehem. The trouble is, no one seems to believe them. How many times have you and I encountered something similar? Our good news quickly turns into doubt, discouragement, or disappointment when shared with others.
This simple and delightful hardcover book sheds light on many important lessons for those both young and young-at-heart:
1. Some people need to see in order to believe while true faith is believing before we see it.(Hebrews 11:1)
2. Good news has no expiry date.
3. Unconditional Love is just that…unconditional. It doesn’t matter how young or old, big or small, happy or grumpy, etc., true unconditional love is present and offered no matter what.
One of my favourite parts of the book is when the mice go looking for the King and they search all the places they think a King would be unbeknownst to them that the King they are looking for is unlike any other king. They look for Him in the main street where busy people rush around, a hotel where sleepy people spend their time resting, and a city market where business people work all day. In all three circumstances, there’s the line “Lots of busy people/sleepy people/working people, but no King.” In the end, the mice see their King in the very stable with all of their friends-the ones who laughed at them, doubted them, and the one who was cranky. It’s a heart warming reminder that Jesus is found in the most unlikely places with the most unlikely people. It’s the true testament of a love that is…unconditional.
“Itsy Bitsy Christmas” is a beautiful rendition of the Christmas story-a story that never gets old.
“You’re never too little for His love!”-Max Lucado
