Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Dr. Judy Rowen
Luminous paintings accompany a retelling of the Christmas story, which extends beyond the birth of Jesus to his presentation at the temple and early childhood. The story is framed by a brief introduction and summation that serve to relate the importance of the story to our present day observance of Christmas.

This book gives all the details you need to understand the reason we celebrate Christmas. Very good to give as a gift to non-believers or people who need a refresher. I bought it for my 2 year old daughter. I plan to read it to her every year at Christmas time for as long as she will let me. It is also beautifully illustrated.

If you are looking for something that will help you or family members remember the true reason for the season, "The Christmas Story" is an excellent tool. Before opening presents on Christmas Day, I read this book to my family and it brought tears to our eyes, causing us to remember who made this day possible.
