There are numerous re-tellings of the blessed birth of Christ in children's literature, and I'm always interested in checking out new ones.

Chris Mouse and the Promise retells the Christmas story from the perspective of a mouse who was in the stable the night the Savior was born. This is a very simple, condensed version of the Christmas story. It should easily hold the interest of young children. Another book that focuses on the real reason for the Christmas holiday, the promised birth of the Savior of the world.

This was the sweetest book about Jesus and t...more

My kids and I sat down and read this book today to get into the holiday spirit. I really liked the casual, relaxed tone of the book.

It was a very condensed version of the Nativity Story but it was great for my younger o...more
