About the Author
JANE WERNER WATSON (1915–2004) was the original editor of Little Golden Books, and the author of numerous Golden Books herself, many of which were illustrated by the great children's illustrators of the mid-twentieth century. Some of her bestselling titles include The Fuzzy Duckling (illustrated by Martin and Alice Provensen), Animal Friends (illustrated by Garth Williams), and My Little Golden Book About God, The Christmas Story, and Wonders of Nature (all illustrated by Eloise Wilkin).
ELOISE WILKIN (1904–1987) illustrated dozens of classic Golden Books in her long career, including The Christmas Story, Wonders of Nature, Baby Listens, and We Help Mommy. Famous for her beautifully detailed paintings of the natural world and of cherubic children, she helped make Golden Books an icon. Her Golden Books Prayers for Children and My Little Golden Book About God have never been out of print.

The book itself is very well made as all Little Golden books are and though the illustrations are colorful and detailed, they look very old and could use a more modern update. But this book does an excellent job of retelling the real meaning of Christmas.
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.
If I was to rate the “quality” of the book itself, no it’s not the greatest, but you get what you pay for. So, all factors considered this is a great purchase.
