This review is from: The Christmas Story (Hardcover)
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.
