Piper picked this Friday’s favorite — “One Night in Bethlehem”, by Jill Roman Lord — and for good reason.

From the hologram-like star on the cover to the teddy bear’s fuzzy belly on the final page, pure delight awaits a child’s senses as Jill skillfully weaves the birth of Jesus Christ throughout. 

Piper never fails to reach for this touch-and-feel book when she visits. If you have a little one nearby, I encourage you to pick up a copy — and if you bring it to Blue Ridge next May, I bet Jill will be happy to sign it for you as she did for Piper. (Thanks, Jill!)  

One Night in Bethlehem was illustrated by Paige Keiser.
