Angela and the baby Jesus by Frank McCourt

I just found this book this year.  It is a children's picture book written by Frank McCourt with wonderful illustrations by Raul Colon about an event from McCourt's mother's life. 

When Angela was a child she stole the Baby Jesus from the manger scene at her church because she was sure that he would get cold and lonely if she left him there.  It is a darling tale.  If you run into it, take a few minutes to read it.  It will bring a warm feeling to your heart.  It did for mine.

  1. Ok, that title is just too funny. I'm sure it wasn't meant to be! But... it just made me laugh out loud. It sounds like a great Christmas story!
