The physical book itself is well made and festive. Each page is colorful and has vibrant paintings of Christmas events in each culture. The type is small, so parents would need to read this to their younger kids. To help readers, the author has included a pronunciation guide in the back. There is also a "fact and fiction" section about common Christmas things which serves as a reference for those who may never have heard of Epiphany or even Jesus Christ. Fun and simple craft guidelines are also included.
While this is a book about Christmas, it is not a religious book (which disappointed me). It mentions religious events associated with Christmas, but treats it holiday as if it is essentially a cultural event. Nevertheless, it is a fun book that is very educational. It would be a great book to have to bring out to display and enjoy at Christmastime.

I thought it would be perfect, but there was not enough pictures and the print was so small hard for younger children to enjoy. This is better for older good readersPublished 4 months ago by A. Hartman
I am British born and bred but I found the information given regarding British Christmas to be inaccurate (what's all this "first footing" malarkey?). Read morePublished 5 months ago by Tanya
