Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Beautiful Spiritual Account of the Nativity  Dec 22, 2007
I bought this book years ago for my son (who's now 17)...it's a simple, beautifully illustrated version of the Nativity. The simple spirituality conveyed in this book is profound. "The Word became Flesh and dwelt among us." In its sweet description of the quiet moments of Jesus' first hours of life on earth, the story reminds children (and adults) that our Savior was human and felt all the things that we as humans feel. It's just beautiful and incredibly moving.
 
Reverently simple introduction to the Christmas story for the little ones  Nov 22, 2007
This book is so amazing! I searched and searched for the right book to share with my children when they were very small. Too many of the books tried to do too much explaining to toddlers. As a previous reviewer put it, 'this book sets the stage' and I'll add that it sets an extremely reverent tone in a way very small children can understand.

It's not just beautiful, it's simple and deep - perfect for kids aged 2-5, but my older kids still enjoy pulling it out to look at the paintings and read the plain text aloud.
 
Great Illustrations, but the author missed the mark  Dec 23, 2005
This book has very beautiful illustrations and I like the simplicity of the text on each page, but I don't love this book.

First, it doesn't really tell a story. It sets the stage for the Christmas story, describing shepherds in a field, a star, a stable, a baby, but then it ends abruptly.

My other problem with the book is the page that depicts Baby Jesus with Mary and Joseph. The text reads, "He felt the night air, his soft blanket, his mother's arms, his father's hands." Most people who want to teach their children about the true meaning of Christmas would probably like to stop and clarify that the father of this baby is God, not the man in the picture.
 
The perfect bedtime story to read on Christmas Eve.  Jan 7, 1999
I discovered this book during the past holiday season and was taken in by the simplistic, yet beautiful re-telling of the Christmas story. Giving life to the words, the illustrations are enchanting. My niece and I enjoyed sharing this book together and I look forward to reading it to my own children on Christmas Eve for many years to come.
