This is an emergent reader book by Sara Ipatenco. It encourages children to recognize the simple sight words such as “was,” "the” and “in.” The 10-page book tells the story of Jesus' birth. The simple text also encourages phonics skills. The book also encourages children to recognize other simple words.Simply cut the pages apart and staple them together. I’ve included a black and white version that students can color themselves and a color version that you can print, laminate and use as a classroom book! Enjoy!!
