This book combines scripture passages with expanded explanation and beautiful painted illustrations. The text is a bit lengthy for young children, but can be shortened easily while letting the full-page 14" x 14" illustrations be the primary story.

Maier writes this children's book at a very high level. It is designed to explain the historical circumstances of Jesus' birth to children but will also inform their parents. He includes many details that scholars are interested in but which are not usually mentioned at Christmas. ( )

This is written from the point of view of a young boy who enjoys true stories. It is a delight to read but is even better when read as to the entire family.
