This book took my breath away with it’s beautiful illustrations! I loved the nativity story at the beginning that quoted from several different books of scripture, including prophecies from Isaiah. Favorite Christmas stories are interspersed with Christmas carols and cookie recipes. After each Christmas carol there is a paragraph telling what we know about how that song originated. Some pages are filled with beautiful artwork and quotes from prophets and others. I enjoyed learning how many different Christmas traditions began. I also enjoyed reading about how Christmas is celebrated in other countries around the world. What a treasure to add to my collection of Christmas books. I am sure this is one that my family will be returning to look at for many years to come. It truly warmed my heart and helped me prepare for this wonderful holiday.
