#480 Away in the Manger “Book” Nativity

Acquired 2007

I was visiting Gloria in Sequim, WA, in July 2007. While visiting the Bible Book Store in her little town, I saw this “Book” style nativity on close out! It is called “Away in the Manger”. The title is inscribed on the outside of the wood box. Inside is a dimensional nativity scene housing several of the nativity animals and Baby Jesus. Two camels look on from the left side of the book and Baby Jesus is surrounded by a calf, donkey, two lambs and a rooster on the right side of the book! Its music box plays, of course, Away in the Manger, when wound. Purchase price at ½ price, $19.00.
