'Bambinelli Sunday' Teachings kids what Christmas is all about

2013-12-07

It seems like Christmas is synonymous with big tress, ornaments, gifts and everything in between. And sometimes it's easy to forget what Christmas is all about. But this children's book, titled 'Bambinelli Sunday' brings it back to the basics by focusing on the Birth of Jesus. 

The word 'Bambinelli' translates to Baby Jesus. The book tells the story of a young boy whose grandfather has an arts and crafts shop in Naples. But around Christmas time, while playing soccer, the boy accidentally breaks part of a Nativity Scene, or more specifically he breaks the figure of Baby Jesus. 

What happens next involves a moving journey with his grandparents, friends and even strangers. In the end, he has a surprising experience in Rome, when he joins thousands of Catholics out in St. Peter's Square with the Pope. 

Written in English by Amy Welborn and illustrated by Ann Kissane Engelhart, the book is actually dedicated to Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI. At the very heart, it tries to teach children early on, what Christmas is all about.
