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.
I bought this book for my two year old and was thrilled to see that even though the cover illustration had changed, the story AND the illustrations on the inside were exactly what I remembered from my own copy years ago.
My daughter really loves this book, and I enjoy reading it to her. Would highly recommend.
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.
