This is a good book. I like the simplicity of the story and the illustrations. I read it to my 6-year-old and she liked the part about Jesus.
Simply gorgeous. The illustrations are captivating and tell more than the words can say. The story itself is beautifully told here. I found that this book beautifully transcends ages and left all of us with a piece of the story.
