About the book:

The true Christmas story in a package kids will love.

This board book is a wonderful way to introduce the miraculous story of Christmas to young hearts. Sweet, rhyming text and adorable illustrations will engage children as parents and grandparents read about the nativity story. The padded cover is a soft but durable format for little hands, and the “carry-me” handle makes it easy for kids to tote this book to bed, to church, in the car, and on-the-go.

My thoughts:

Absolutely adorable would be the best description of this book. It is a heavy duty board book designed with little hands in mind. It has a handle that my little grandson loved using to carry the book around. The cover is padded and the inside pages are very sturdy to stand up to your toddler's handling of it.

The story is told in a sing-songy style of verse. The rhymes are easily spoken aloud and will delight your little one. The illustrations are very colorful and have a beautiful mixed media style to them. The best part is that the story does not deviate from the original telling in the scriptures.

This little book would make a wonderful stocking stuffer for your little one. I think you will be thrilled to watch your sweet little guy or girl carry this book around. We were thrilled to watch our little one tote it around and then bring it to us to read it to them.
