Amber Schamelabout this book: The Swaddling Clothes is a very unique angle on the traditional Christmas story. It begins at the time of King David and follows the creation of the cloth through the Jewish captivity and up to the stable in Bethlehem.
The idea came from overhearing a line in a Veggie Tales movie. My siblings were watching a Veggie Tales movie about the Toy that Saved Christmas. (the fact that it was late August didn't seem to bother them.) I overheard Pa quote the scripture "and she brought forth her first born son and wrapped him in baby clothes and laid him in a manger."
Whoa, hold on a second, I thought. The KJV doesn't say "baby clothes" it says "swaddling clothes." If the swaddling clothes were just baby clothes, it couldn't have been a sign to the shepherds...could it? And so the research began. What were the swaddling clothes? What made that tidbit significant? I came out with three or four ideas that wove themselves into the tapestry of the story.
If you're looking for a unique story that brings the Christmas story to life, this is it. Join me on an unforgettable adventure that will become one of your Christmas favorites!
