I liked this book because it was short, easy to read, and easy to understand.

I would highly recommend this book esp if you want to teach your children the real story of Christmas.

This is the REAL Christmas story about the REAL Christ -- the REAL meaning of Christmas.

I teach Kindergarten at a Catholic school. This is the perfect book to tell about the birth of Jesus. It has beautiful illustations and the words engage the listener. You will love it!

When I was a little girl, my mom bought The Christmas Story book that was in circulation in the 70's. I remember closely looking at the pictures, loving the beautiful colors. The copy I had showed Mary on the cover.

I bought this book for my two year old and was thrilled to see that even though the cover illustration had changed, the story AND the illustrations on the inside were exactly what I remembered from my own copy years ago.

My daughter really loves this book, and I enjoy reading it to her. Would highly recommend.

We bought The Christmas Story as a gift for our son. We wanted to use the book to share the birth of Jesus around the holidays. It is very child friendly, and the artwork was wonderful. It will become a tradition for us to read this every year during the Christmas season.

If you are buying this book to give to beginner readers, it uses vocabulary such as jostling, weary, kinsmen, wicked, and departed. Easy words for adults, but more difficult for children to decode and comprehend the story. I also felt as if some of the sentence structures were a bit awkward. Overall, it is a great way to introduce the true Christmas story to your family.

This is a good book for teaching the Christian/Catholic meaning of Christmas but the book is over 50 years old so the wording is dated. It might be a little harder to read if English is not your first language, but not impossible. It could be very beneficial to your children to read a book like this because it opens up their reading vocabulary. Many kids books today are lacking good writing and different writing styles, making reading the classics later on in life much harder. Give your kids a head start and buy books from all periods of time in American literature like this one!

This was a gift for my infant granddaughter. Her mom read the story to her often. According to her mom, she 'enjoyed' the story, and was quiet when it was read to her. Amazing! Highly recommended.

We purchased "The Christmas Story" to add to our son's books. We took it to our family's Christmas celebration to share with his cousins before everyone opened their Christmas gifts. It was short enough to hold everyone's attention but did not skimp on the details of Christ's birth and being accurate to Scripture. We will include reading this book in each year's Christmas celebrations.

I was looking for a kids book that explains the Christmas story. It does but I think the word choice is too complex and too old world for my 4 year old. I end up changing some of the sentences as I read so that he understands.
