Every Christian culture has given us touching legends
and charming stories of the wondrous deeds of the Child Jesus. Many of
these tales reveal to children the generous ways He helps them when
they're unhappy or afflicted.
More than a
century ago, A. Fowler Lutz collected the best of these legends.
Although they spring from lands as various as France, Norway, and
Greece, Germany, Syria, and China, these stories have many excellent
things in common.
Each has the simplicity of goodness, and each is
rich with the faith of ordinary people who aren't surprised by
miracles. In these stories, they even seem to expect miracles!
The young heroes of these tales have a faith simpler
than ours, and stronger. They know that Jesus is close to us, no
matter how far away He may seem. They trust that He's walking with us
every step of our way, no matter how steep and rocky our path may be.
That's the faith you'll find in these Stories of
the Child Jesus from Many Lands,an innocent faith you can instill
in your own little ones by reading aloud to them these sweet tales.
