Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This story has endured over a century, inspiring readers with its ageless quality. Two brothers prove to the world that the greatest offering that someone can make to honor the Christ child is not in gold, silver, or even a king's crown, it is in compassion, sacrifice and reaching out to others. My grandmother had the 1909 edition that was so beautifully illustrated. I was delighted to find the book still available for future generations of children.
