Reviews - What do customers think about Story of Christmas: Portfolio of Cards (Bible Storycards)?
Good story, unattractive illustrations May 7, 2006
I thought the story of Christmas as told by this book was simple enough for my young children to understand without diluting the meaning of the holiday or hitting us over the head with religious sentiment. However, the illustrations in the book are so unappealing that I dread it when my kids bring it to me to read to them. The characters were devoid of any personality and so very, shall we say, white bread. I give it a 5 for the telling of the story and a 1 for the illustrations, evening it out to 3 stars.
I love this book Nov 25, 2004
I love this little book. The story is simple. The story is easy to understand. The illustrations are very good. Unlike another little Christmas book I bought for my 2-year-old, this one actually does tell the story of Christmas.
Great, basic version of the story Nov 4, 2003
I bought this for my daughter, who is 4. I think the text is a little young for her, but it's a clear, simple version of the story. The best part is that it doesn't pile on the religious interpretations. It just tells the basic facts of the story: angel appears to Mary, Mary and Joseph prepare for the baby, donkey ride to Bethlehem, no room in the inn, Jesus born in stable, wise men follow star, angel appears to shepherds, we give gifts on Christmas "to show our love and to say Happy Birthday to Baby Jesus."
Now, I know for a fact that my daughter will ask WHY the angel appeared to the shepherds, etc., but this book gives us the chance to explain that in our own way. I bought this to go with the Fisher Price Little People nativity set to start explaining the story of Christmas, and I think they'll go very well together. (The nativity set doesn't have any shepherds, so we're planning to use the little farmer from her barnyard set! Hey, close enough.)
The Story of Christmas Nov 30, 1999
This is a great book for toddlers to help them understand the true meaning of Christmas. It is easy reading with great pictures. A great Christmas gift.
The Story of Christmas Nov 29, 1999
This is a wonderful book to teach young children the true meaning of Christmas. It ties in the tradition of gift-giving very nicely. An excellent stocking stuffer for all the little ones on your list!
