The Strangers at the Manger
This fresh yet authentic retelling of the biblical Infancy Narratives sheds new light on the life of the Holy Family. And when at last the Magi arrive, Katie asks Mary, “Are you sure you want all of these strangers around the baby?" Mary smiles. "Strangers are simply new friends, just waiting to be loved.” Katie and Patrick think of the Perez family. Can they still make new friends for Christmas?

Katie and Patrick are off an another “chime traveling” adventure, but this time, they get to travel together! Can you imagine being at Christ's birth yourself? Now you and your children can imagine being there together!
My favorite aspect of The Strangers at the Manger was how it relates the story of welcoming Christ to the welcoming of refugees seeking safe accommodations in our world today. This is a message for the whole Church and a great lesson to share with our children. Author Lisa M. Hendey sets this lesson up beautifully in this book.
These books are wonderful for reading a chapter per day in a school, Catechism class, or at bedtime with your children. They make a great, inexpensive gift for your Godchildren, your grandchildren, your nieces and nephews, kids birthday parties, family friends, and really for any children in your life.
Share the Faith, share some fun, and share some Chime Travelers adventures with your family. The Strangers at the Manger is available via Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Franciscan Media. Find links to each of these purchase locations here at the fun Chime Travelers Kids website.
My daughter was so excited to see the cover of this book on here… “Hey! We have that book! That picture is like a little family! It’s like our family!”
Yes, when we welcome strangers in the way Katie and Patrick do, it does make us like a little family.
