A lovely way for families and classes to prepare for Christmas is to make a nativity scene. The main characters change through December as the story progresses; Mary and Joseph can even journey around a room, until at last they arrive at the stable.

This book has illustrated step-by-step instructions for making all the main figures: Mary, Joseph, Jesus, the angel, the donkey, shepherds, kings, camels, and stable animals. There are also instructions for different styles of stable, and advice on decorating the whole display. No special skills or expensive materials are needed.

Additionally, the book includes themed songs with music and a Christmas play that a family or class could act out together.
