Author and artist Carol Heyer has created an exquisitely beautiful rendering of the story of the first Christmas. Here is the young Mary, the richly attired Magi, the protective Joseph, and the roughly clad shepherds gathered round the manger that held the Son of God. This is the traditional story, based on the Bible account. Heyer's art, rendered on canvas, imparts to the book the texture of an elegant and classic work of art.

This is the book you want to read with kids. The art is beautiful beyond words, and the story told beautifully as well. It is a read together year after year book! 1
Gave this to my 4 year old to enhance her learning about the Christmas story. The artwork left both of us amazed. It is, as always, a beautiful story, but now has beautiful pictures to go with it.
