"An illustrated story about Bambinelli Sunday, an Italian Catholic family tradition in which hand-crafted babies ("bambinelli") destined for the Nativity scene at home are blessed by the pope in a public celebration"--
Alessandro is staying with his grandparents, who run a small shop that sells figures for the "presepe" (Nativity scene), while his parents look for work in another country. To help with the boy's loneliness, his grandfather encourages Alessandro to make his own figure of the baby Jesus. They will bring that figure to Rome in two weeks to have it blessed by the Holy Father on Bambinelli Sunday. Through the events that occur in the time leading up to receiving the blessing in St. Peter's Square, Alessandro comes to see his world in a new way, and receives the best surprise of all in the end.
This book for children ages 7-10 tells a wonderful story about sharing, comfort, generosity, and forgiveness through the lens of a long-standing Italian tradition. The beautiful illustrations and timeless story make this a treasure Advent and Christmas resource for generations to come.
