Finding the Baby Jesus Blog Tour

Tour Schedule

Welcome to the blog tour for Finding the Baby Jesus by Kimball Fisher!

After being forced to wear lederhosen for the annual holiday card picture, twelve-year-old Chris thinks that the least his parents can do is get him the Tony Hawk skateboard he wants for Christmas. But when he recovers the hand-carved Baby Jesus that everyone thought had been destroyed in a fire the year his Grandma died, Chris realizes that some gifts are even more important than skateboards.

When the author had to discontinue a cherished tradition of reading Christmas stories out loud with his family and holiday guests each week in December, he wrote Finding the Baby Jesus. He had been unable to locate enough meaningful stories that could be read in a single sitting with wiggly children.

Chris is not having the best Christmas. He's pretty sure he's not getting the one thing he really wants, and he's having to celebrate the holiday without his beloved Grandma. Things start looking up when Chris's Grandpa proves to have a great night planned. Chris gets exactly what he wants, but he soon learns there may be another boy his age who needs it much more. Chris will sacrifice much, but he will gain even more as the memory of his Grandma helps to increase the Christmas spirit.

This story is a wonderful way to celebrate Christmas! The brevity is fantastic because it allows for the story to keep young people's attention. It's short enough to be enjoyed in one sitting, which is the perfect thing for the busy holiday season. It's also written in a beautiful way that children of all ages will be able to relate to. I loved this story, and I think it will be a wonderful way to bring in the true meaning and spirit of Christmas. This story will make a great new Christmas tradition, so definitely check it out.
