The Strangers at the Manger, Volume 5

by Lisa M Hendey (Author), Jenn Bower (Illustrator)

It's Christmas time at St. Anne parish, and a new family has arrived! The Perez family doesn't look like the other families in the parish. As five-year-old Mateo stares at Katie and Patrick, clutching his little stuffed burro, they see he's just puzzled about them. But it's Father Miguel's job to take care of them, right? Just then, a bell rings and the twins are swept up in another Chime Travel adventure, this time to find Mary and Joseph on their way to Bethlehem.

In this exciting new installment in the popular Chime Traveler series for elementary students, Patrick and Katie Brady are introduced to an immigrant family who recently arrived at St. Anne's Parish. A tinkling bell transports the twins to first-century Bethlehem, where they meet the Holy Family--and come to understand what it is like to be a "stranger at the manger." This unique retelling of the Christmas story will help children grow in faith and compassion. Illustrations by Jenn Bower. 

Book 5 in the Chime Travelers series, exciting new chapter books ideal for children in grades 2-5.
