Our customer reviews

I found that there was a rather limited selection of good, meaningful christmas books for kids that really hit home the real meaning of christmas. Most are either very dated and have a heavy text to them, or they swing to the other extreme and completely negate the real reason or theology behind christmas and are simply just about santa or presents. 'Christmas in a Manger' was a lovely find, engaging with the real reason for Christmas but still a fun, simple and uncomplicated book, appropriate even for those who are not 'religious'. I used if from when my son was just a baby and at 2+ now, he's still finding it quite a fun read. Here are some things that I really like about the book. - it's a board book, so very durable and easy for the child to handle as well. - the illustrations are simple but still pleasing to the eye. - each page opens and has 4 lines that rhyme and these are printed in a very easy to read font. - because it rhymes it's easy for kids to read and imitate. - the sparkly star - my kids like it Something a bit strange that I can't quite figure out is why the page with Mary and Joseph has the picture on the left and the text on the right - that's the only page in the book like that. Also, I know books can be pricey, this one is reasonable, maybe slightly more than I'd normally pay. Lastly, I think a good book is one that you would buy other people. This is a book that I would keep buying for friends that have kids as a nice Christmas present.show more
