Here is the traditional nativity story of Mary and the angel, of Joseph and his dream, of the journey to Bethlehem and the baby in the manger, of the angels singing in the skies above Bethlehem and the visit of the shepherds, of the wise men and the star and the gifts which they brought to the newborn king. The traditional story is exquisitely illustrated to make this book a gift to treasure for all the Christmases of childhood.
