Pamela Dalton's exquisite, intricate scissor-cut illustrations wonderfully illuminate The Story of Christmas. Deeply reverent, richly detailed, and teeming with life, Dalton's images follow the story of the Nativity from the appearance of the Angel, to the shepherds who came from the fields, and to the three wise men who followed the star to pay respect for their new king. Working in a Pennsylvania-German folk-art tradition, rich with lovingly rendered animals and figures, Pamela Dalton has created a book that takes a deserved place among the finest celebrations of Christmas.

The delicate paper cuts and attractive colors make this a beautiful, beautiful book. King James text. Having given it to several families, I am buying this copy for myself.
I bought this for future grandchildcn but really for me as the artwork is amazing. It is all cut from paper and is intricate and beautiful. The story is straight from the Bible and is the perfect coffee table or guest room book for Christmas. I'll buy some for gifts next year.
