5.0

This is a beautifully illustrated version of the tale of baby Jesus’ first night, told to the cadence of ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas. My favorite thing about this book is the absolute adoration visible on Mary’s and Joseph’s face, both for each other and for the baby Jesus, and when he finished hearing this book for the first time, my two-year-old said “Again!”, so there was something appealing to him about it as well.

The story of the nativity told in a beautiful rhyme that mimics “The Night Before Christmas” story, which makes it familiar and fun to read. The illustrations are very pretty, and I think this book does a great job including a lot of the details of the story!
