Grandma Cookie a goat in the Christmas Gift tells a story to all of her grandkids of why we celebrate Christmas. Christmas is a special time of year for us to enjoy our friends and family. A time of year to celebrate the birth of our Savior.
The Christmas Gift
I was inspired to write this book for someone very dear and close to me. I realized this young person didn’t understand why we celebrate Christmas.
After realizing this I woke up one morning and started to write on a scratch paper I found in my nightstand. After completing a very rough draft I read it to my husband Shawn. I said that I had written this story for this young person in my life. He said no this is a story for everyone.
I was so excited and worked for about 8 months solid to complete this storybook.
Every year we have a Live Nativity here at our home. It is a fun and exciting night. We look forward to having our children return home and bring our grandchildren. Our neighbors and friends bring pots of soup and goodies. We have hot chocolate to help warm us up as we stand around the campfires in freezing weather.
Grandma Cookie has been in her share of these Live Nativities. She is more than qualified to tell the story.
Even baby goat kids love stories
Kids all love stories, even baby goat “kids.” Join these kids as their Grandma Cookie shares the story of why we celebrate Christmas.
This story is not your ordinary story. The Farmer and his Wife share a family tradition with their friends and neighbors. The farm animals also join in to celebrate.
The kids dress up as Shepherds and Angels. They join the children we have asked to play Joseph, Mary, and the Wisemen. They all gather behind the Nativity scene to get their quick instructions of what to do. Mary is introduced to Gus the donkey as Joseph learns to lead him.
Grandma Cookie and Gus join the kids
Grandma Cookie along with other goats join in with the Shepherds. The Angels stand on top of the hay bales used for the backdrop, waiting for the show to begin.
While presents, parties, are fun and exciting, the real meaning of Christmas is sometimes forgotten. In this book “The Christmas Gift,” pictures of live farm animals and the beautiful mountain setting helps bring this treasured tradition to life.
This is why I wrote “The Christmas Gift.” Grandma Cookie and all of the animals help bring this story to life.
