The Christmas Book by Dick Bruna

The Christmas book is so perfect for a young child.  It is a simple retelling of the famous bible story but Dick Bruna still uses the authentic vocabulary. "One gave him gold, one frankincense and one myrrh."

I love the format of this book. It is a thin, landscape presentation with text on one page and a full page illustration on each facing side.  Even the back cover is perfect - it has the star!

Thanks to one generous family you can find this book in our library.  I had thought it was out of print and then last year we were given a copy as a present.  Here is a lovely review.
