Go on a fun Christmas adventure with Leah's Star!

Enjoy this touching adaptation of the Christmas story!

"Leah's Star" follows the Christmas story from a different angle, from the perspective of the innkeeper's young daughter, Leah. During the busiest season of the year in Bethlehem, a star appears which fascinates Leah. This is a new take on a well-known story which centres the help the innkeeper and his family provided. This beautiful story by Margaret Bateson-Hill is accompanied by touching illustrations by Karin Littlewood and is an engaging read for young children.

We are delighted to be giving away a copy of "Leah's Star" to five lucky winners who fill out the form below by 11pm Wednesday 20th December 2023. Good Luck!
