This book is a fluent read about the birth of Jesus. The pictures add a touch of dreamy take me back in time feel. This is a must have story for the holiday season.

There may be good Christmas books out there, but this isn't one of them. I bought it for my grandson to go with the Little People manger set. It doesn't really tell the Christmas story, however. Concentration on the star and not the baby Jesus. The text isn't suitable for a young child either--too many big words.

The title is 'The Christmas Star' but the star is not the focus of this book. The Star of Bethlehem is on most of the pages but that is because it is leading everyone to the Holy Child,Jesus Christ!

I like to have a great selection of magical Christmas books on hand during the season, and for as much as I'm obsessed with creating a sense of wonder around Santa Claus, etc., I want to also make sure my kiddos have an even greater sense of wonder about God and Christ himself. This book helps create the magic, but it isn't teaching any major lessons either. It's perfect for 1-4 year old lap reading.

This is by far my favorite children's Christmas book. It's true to the biblical story. I am a children's director at a church, and I read this to the children in front of the church at our Christmas Eve service. I received several compliments about the story. My daughter loves reading the book at home as well.

This book has great artwork and is good to read to young children as a start to understand the Christmas story. It attempts to tell the story of the Christ Childs birth, but gets some of the facts wrong.

In the Biblical story Luke 2 the shepherds saw an angel who spoke instructions to them to go the town of David (Bethlehem) and find the lying in a manger. Many angels then appeared to them giving praise to God. They then went directly to Bethlehem to find the infant Christ.

The Wise Men or Magi did see a star that guided them, but most likely arrived about 2 years after the birth of Christ. If you read the Matthew 2 account you will see that Herod questioned the Magi as to the timing of the birth and then gave orders to kill infant boys under two years of age to eliminate the new King. Most likely the shepherds and the wise men did not visit the Christ Child at the same time.

Pictures are blurry. Probably would not have ordered it if I had seen it. It is not a good fit for a one year old.
