Wow! This is such a stunning little Christmas story that is most definitely a real keeper.
Dick Bruna has very gently and very simply put together his version of the Christmas story and it makes for a very special read. What I think is so great is how easy it is for kids to wrap their heads around.
The illustrations are so simplistic and perhaps a bit old fashioned but there in lies the beauty - these illustrations are truly memorable. This is actually the 50th anniversary addition of this book - so it has very easily stood the test of time. I think it will be around for a very long time to come.
An absolute must have Christmas book for children everywhere!
5 / 5 Stars!
