Firstly, Joseph (Yoseph) is said to be a righteous man (Scripturally), but through a large part of the book he's shown to barely believe in YHWH! Secondly, reading the book to my children, I found some of the sexual elements rather unnecessary. One section that I skimmed over (without reading aloud) concerning the wedding time was actually not very "righteous" language at all, and not required for children or adults! The third thing that has bugged me, was the changing of Yeshua's name to the nickname, Yisu. With the meaning behind the true name, and after angels declaring His name personally to the parents, I think you'd stick with the given name!! In the section where His nickname developed, Yoseph was unwilling to let Yeshua call him anything other than Abba - yet he (in the story) had no issue changing the Son of God's name!!
After all that I've said, which some may call petty, I still have enjoyed the book, and it's helped us see things in a more original light. It's still a book that I think has been worth reading.
