This book is BEAUTIFULLY illustrated!
It explains the Christmas song we sing each year, but until now, at least I, never really understood.
What a beautiful way to teach about the giving of Christmastime and the example of one King to his page.
I also LOVED the side notes explaining "St. Stephen's Day" and what a " Page boy" is;
Along with "life in a castle" and "Christmas celebrations in the middle ages."
The book is wonderful in and of itself,
But there is more!!!
You also get a DVD of Jane Seymour telling this story with the Mormon Tabernacle singing the song and amazing dancers performing.
A true treasure book for Christmas!

Good King Wenceslas by Jane Seymour's
4 STARS

I was just given the review on the ebook I recieved,it only had story not the DVD or big enough pictures to see the details.
I bet all of the things included in the hard back book would recieve 5 stars.

I have heard the song, I have even song it. But I never paid attention to the story before.
What a good example the King was to go out and help those poor in need and teach that to other generations to help those who have less. To share by choice because you see a need. Which is a important lesson for all to learn.

I think this would be a good book to have and read each Christmas season. I know that it is one that I plan to seek out and have for future Christmas to share.

I was given this ebook to read in exchange of honest review by Netgalley.

Description below taken off of Netgalley.com

One snowy evening, when the rest of the kingdom is reveling in a celebratory feast, a king and his faithful page venture out to deliver food, wood, and comfort to a poor peasant family. "Good King Wenceslas" is the beloved Christmas carol that relates this tender story, and it is brought to life in this book and DVD by actress Jane Seymour and artist Omar Rayyan. The sumptuous illustrations reflect the medieval setting of this tale, capturing the lavish Feast of St. Stephen at the castle and the arduous trek through heavy snow to a humble cottage deep within the forest. The original lyrics to the song, set to music more than 150 years ago, are interwoven throughout the story.

I bought this book for my husband who loves this Christmas carol. I thought the book was written very well with explanations to clarify the meaning of a page, St. Stephens day plus other information to enhance the meaning of the carol . Great illustrations give life to the story. The Mormon Tabernacle programs are always spectacular so I look forward to hearing the DVD on Christmas Day when he opens it. Any book that teaches the sharing and caring of one person for another is a winner with me. This is my new favorite Christmas book. I bought another for my grandson.

My husband loved this for Christmas. He loved it when Jane Seymour did this segment on the Mormon Tabernacle Choir Christmas special several years ago. We had it recorded on our cable TV DVR, but lost it when our equipment had to be upgraded. So, finding the DVD and wonderfully illustrated book was awesome. He was so surprised when he unwrapped it. Couldn't be happier with the item and great Amazon shipping.

I saw Jane Seymour on PBS with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and thoroughly enjoyed her reading of this book. I hadn't known much about the "Good King Wenceslas" Christmas carol and I found myself being drawn into the story. The story is beautiful and the illustrations outstanding. It is now one of my favorite Christmas stories.

I just happened to catch this story told by Jane Seymour on PBS this Christmas (2012) and had to have it.
It comes with the DVD of her telling the story with a full orchestra, etc. I teach Third Grade and they will love it, I'm sure. I can't wait to share this with them next December.

This is a beautiful accompaniment to the latest Mormon Tabernacle Christmas concert DVD. Jane Seymour does a wonderful job narrating. The book is beautifully illustrated. I wait every year for this series, and I understand Alfie Boe is featured next year. Can't wait.
