I liked this book for many different reasons. I liked that this book was told and not being read. The book begins with a mother and son who are sitting by a fireplace and the son wants to learn about Christmas. The mother tells the story of when baby Jesus was born. The language of this story is clear and simple. The author does not use very descriptive language. The author is trying to portray the story of how baby Jesus was born. The illustrations are very detailed and enhance the text. The big idea or message of this story is to pass down the story of how baby Jesus was born. This story is one of the many that teach children about different cultures and how holidays were created. I liked this book because it was simple and the message was to the point.
