I read this to my 2 1/2 year old and five year old. They both like the photos, the story is wrote in a poetic way, which they enjoy listening to. The illustrations are wonderfully done! This is the perfect book to share with your family and read throughout the holiday season and on Christmas day. At the end of the book is the Bible scripture of the real first Christmas, Luke 2:1, 4-16, 20 and Matthew 2:1-2, 9-11. This book definitely portrays the real meaning of Christmas, which is something I want my children to grow up knowing.
I have been blessed to offer one of my readers this book free. If you like to win, please leave a comment before November 9, 2013.
