The Lovereading4Kids comment

A simply-phrased and evocatively illustrated retelling of the story of the nativity from the moment Mary is told by the angel Gabriel that she is to be the mother of a baby boy. Mary’s doubts and the subsequent story of the birth of the baby in a stable and the worshippers who are led to him by the bright shining star are atmospherically captured in words and pictures.

Synopsis

The Story of Christmas by Mary Joslin

A classic retelling of the Nativity full of angels. Illustrated throughout with a mixture of full page art, vignettes, and borders in sumptuous reds, purples and majestic blues, this Christmas story book is simply breathtaking. Told in words resonant of the Bible, this is a picture book to be enjoyed year after year.

Reviews

'This is a picture book to treasure for years to come.'

'Connell Evening Echo'
