Hi! My name is Rebecca. I am the Author of the bestselling book for transitioning from Primary to Secondary called "I Can't Do It Yet…But School Is Epic". I am also the pioneer of the Youtube videos on our channel (GirlsparklesAbel). After publishing my first book last year, I have been encouraged by family and friends to release my next book.This book is one of my series about retelling the story of the bible. While growing up, I watched Smile of a Child TV, Animated stories like Heroes and Super book. I often wondered what happened behind the scene of bible stories. My perspective is to merge fiction with non fiction, desiring to see how the bible character will live in this modern age.I know I cannot say for certain how the story unfolded behind the scene but I have tried to explain it and to get the readers thinking about how the characters in the bible felt I different situations. This book helps the reader to put themselves in the shoes of the characters and find a deeper understanding of bible stories that often seem irrelevant.I am encouraging both old and young, Believer or Non Believer to pick up this book to read and get some inspiration or better understanding of this story about the birth of Jesus. If you were young Mary and you got a strange text, what will you do? This book is a good read for the family and to encourage children to read. Some of the scenes expressed in this book are asking questions like how did Joseph know that Mary was pregnant before he had a dream? How far is Galilee from Bethlehem? Were there actually three wise men who visited Jesus? How was the census done in those days? Was Jesus born on Christmas day 25th? How did Mary feel about the whole situation? How about the conflict in Joseph's mind?Grab your copies of this book as presents for your children, cousins, nieces, nephews and friends.
