Books like this explain why people grow up being so bad at punctuation. Someone at the publishing house should have explained to this author the difference between a comma and a period or a semicolon. Ach. (Sorry, Ms. Buck, but your punctuation here really is bad. There is only one page that doesn't have a comma problem, and I suspect it was just a fluke.)
My brother & his family sent this to Lincoln and it is a simple little Christmas book. Lincoln loves to find the shiny star and make the animal noises. Joseph doesn't get any mention, but he is in the background with male pattern baldness. :) It doesn't go into much detail, but who needs that at 15 months? Good little book.

A short board book, this one simply introduces key players in the Christmas story. Like, the ram that guards the stall where Jesus was born, the donkey that carried Mary, and the shepherds that keep a holy watch. Everything rhymes nicely and has bright illustrations to keep little eyes on the page. A winner for the young ones!
