4.0 out of 5 stars Missing the Wise Men December 4, 2007
Format:Board book
This book is great, as far as it goes. I know the Wise Men (or kings) weren't there at the birth of Jesus, but all her other Christmas books and her Nativity set have them and this one doesn't. Also, Mary doesn't look pregnant at all and they don't mention that she is. All of a sudden, in the middle of the night, there is the Baby Jesus. I do like the illustrations, and the fact that it follows the Bible fairly closely. One of the better choices available in board books for telling the Christmas story.

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Not pleased with the vague. The fact that she was to even have a baby was not there. I now will buy another book!
