Ideal resource as a giveaway at school nativities or advent church services during the Christmas period.
Mary and Joseph in the stable. Angels, shepherds, wise men and assorted animals standing by. A baby doll in the straw-filled manger. The nativity play is a fun event in the Christmas calendar for children and adults alike.

This booklet takes each element of the nativity story – the people, the place and even the date of the birth of Jesus – and explores what we know about them based on historical sources.
