As the children are very young they need choir backing on the CD. Also does it have Away in a manger in it.

A:Hi Miriam. Thanks for your question about 'The Nativity Play' book by Nick Butterworth and Mick Inkpen. This is a story book that tells the story of two children, Tracy and Sam, and their involvement in a nativity play. The story in simple words and pictures follows the children and all the parents, teachers and helpers as they create the wonder of a traditional nativity play from simple materials and fabrics. It's both an inspiration and tribute to the thousands of adults and children who will create and participate in the familiar reenactment of the first Christmas story. The item shown on the Eden page is a paperback book. It is not a CD and contains no music or backing for the accompaniment of a manger scene play.
