Christmas Show and Tell
Christmas Show and Tell is a simple preschool (Pre-K) children’s Christmas musical that includes both rhymes and narration plus 6 preschool Christmas songs.
Your Pre-K children will need to gather up a suitcase, a pillow, a teddy bear, a toothbrush and some bells for Christmas Show and Tell. They will love sharing the Christmas story as they show and tell us:
. . . what Mary and Joseph packed for their trip to Bethlehem,
. . . how the animals greeted the new baby in their barn,
. . . what the wisemen followed to find the Savior.
Then your preschoolers will ring their bells in celebration of God’s gift to the world at Christmas – Jesus!

Simplicity of the songs
Do you know that you are one of a handful of companies that even offers age-appropriate musicals for preschool? The simplicity of the songs and upbeat selections are a hit with both the children and their parents. Thanks for doing what you do so well.
Received very well
This is the third year in a row we’re using one of your musicals. They’ve been received very well by both the kids and their parents, and I appreciate that the music is always appropriate for their ages and skill levels.
Everyone was so thrilled with the Christmas program. Thank you so much for doing such a good job scripting Christmas Show & Tell. It was darling!
The best program
