Why is there an elephant in my Christmas manger?


A heartwarming Christmas story.

by Jose C. Aranas

This children’s story book is an attempt of New City Press to keep alive the dream of Chiara Lubich to celebrate the real meaning of Christmas, around Jesus, Emmanuel – God-with-us.


“Certainly, not the usual animal that you will find in a manger. Why is there an elephant in my Christmas manger highlights the value that our heartfelt and loving presence is more important than any material gift we can offer… God sees the right intention in our hearts, and He is pleased with that. Surely, an important lesson to share with children especially during Christmas season.”
