I am so exited to introduce to you my new sweet friend and fellow Little Lamb Books author, Janet Christensen. She is guest blogging today and is sharing a special interview with the main character of her new book, Cairo's Christmas Journey. It is releasing very soon on Amazon and Barnes and Noble, but is available NOW on the Little Lamb Books online store. I can't wait to get my copy!
Enjoy the interview!
Tori, thanks so much for letting me join you today to tell you a little bit more about my new Christian children’s book, Cairo’s Christmas Journey. Today, I have brought the main character of the story along to help tell you about his story. Everybody, I would like to introduce you to my friend, Cairo the Cricket.
Janet: So, Cairo, I am sure everyone is excited to hear about the “journey” of yours.
Cairo: It was quite a night. I didn’t think I would ever make it. You see, I play lullabies to help the shepherds put their sheep to sleep for the night. I was playing my songs, and the sheep were almost sound asleep when the most amazing flash of light appeared, and along with it, a bunch of angels.
Janet: Oh, my! That sounds incredible.
Cairo: It was. And when one of the angels asked me to go to Bethlehem to play a song for the newborn king, I just couldn’t believe it. You see, Bethlehem was far away from our pasture. I knew I couldn’t make the journey on my own.
Janet: So, what did you do?
Cairo: The angel told me that God would help me get there. So, I just started hopping. But it was an even harder journey than I thought it would be.
Janet: Is that right?
Cairo: I didn’t think I would ever make it. I found myself in so many sticky situations. But do you know what? The angel was right.
Janet: How’s that?
Cairo: The angel told me that God would send me the help I needed, and that is just what God did. And do you know what?
Cairo: I made it all the way to Bethlehem that night.
Janet: So you got to play your song for the Messiah after all?
Cairo: I did. Before long he was fast asleep.
Janet: That is just amazing.
Cairo: I will never forget that night. I learned a very important lesson.
Janet: And what was that?
Cairo: That God is there to help us on our toughest journeys. I have remembered that ever since that night.
Janet: That is indeed an important lesson.
