The beautiful illustrations touched with gold and the text from the King James Bible make this my favorite nativity story of all time, from childhood on.

This is gem!

This is the story of Christmas told in the words of the New Testament (okay, the English translation of Matthew and Luke). The illustrations are gentle and stunning. The story begins before the birth of Jesus and continues the tale until Jesus is 12 and found in the temple.

The pages are laid out in an open, easy to read fashion. The illustrations are mostly full page, and the story is broken up into sections like chapters, but it might take about 10 minutes to read the whole book.

This book is gorgeous. I believe it is out of print. I bought a used copy that came in good condition. The title is "The Christ Child" and inside the book is a sub-title" As told by Matthew and Luke." Lovely illustrations. The book was arranged in 7 short little chapters or sections, starting with Prophecy. A wonderful way of introducing the words of the bible to a child. I will treasure this one!

Beautiful illustrations. Tells the story of Christ's birth with text from the gospels of Matthew and Luke. Starts with prophecy of the Messiah and follows the story until Jesus is age 12.
