More than 50,000 copies sold 'Twas the Evening of Christmas was named a 2018 ECPA Christian Book Award Finalist.

Families will gather each Advent season to share the beautiful retelling of the story of Jesus's birth. This picture book features:

'Twas the evening of Christmas, when all through the town,

Every inn was so crowded, no room could be found.

Tired Mary and Joseph, who went door to door,

At last found a place on a small stable floor.

"Nellist presents a nativity story that balances a lighthearted, anticipatory tone with an overarching reverence for the subject matter," said Publishers Weekly. 'Twas the Evening of Christmas is a recommended Advent gift that will be cherished for many years.
