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.
