Review quote

A beautifully illustrated version of the Christmas story. * Church Times * 5/5 stars A retelling of the biblical Christmas story, this book is a wonderfully accessible and straightforward way of acquainting earliest readers with the First Christmas. Wonderfully at home in a church school classroom or private library, this book is sure to become an annual favourite. What made this book over the top perfection for me, is the artwork of Alison Jay. Amazingly detailed, compelling artwork spans each page, creating both full page vignettes and charming borders for text. I couldn't love this book more! -- Goodreads reviewer * Goodreads *
