Synopsis

Christ Legends by Selma Lagerlof

The stories of Jesus' birth and childhood are well known, but Selma Lagerlof brings them truly to life in this wonderful collection of tales for children. Her storytelling draws vividly on the colourful history and landscape of the Holy Land. She weaves in a cast of lively characters whose experiences and points of view are not usually represented: a war-hardened soldier at Herod's feast, a grumpy shepherd, Emperor Tiberius himself. Together they proclaim the human drama and divine mystery of the events of Christ's life.

Reviews

'Brings many familiar stories alive in an enchanting way.'

'The reappearance of these wonderful stories will delight all who enjoy telling or reading stories at Christmastide. As a teacher, when I told my classes of primary school children the stories In Nazareth and In The Temple they proved very popular and inspired excellent artwork! These stories are a wonderful antidote to the materialism and sentimentality which so often mar the celebration of Christmas.'

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

Alexander Boxall – age 11

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
