A beautiful book Dec 5, 2009
I bought this book for my newborn son as an early Christmas present. It's absolutely beautiful -- the artwork AND the story! The story is written in a sort of Seuss-ish rhyme scheme. I read it to him for the first time the other night, and I can tell it's going to be one of those books that we will read every Christmas and cherish. I highly recommend this book!
Good for a new baby Dec 26, 2008
Cute book. Would be best suited for a newborn... "First Christmas". I had intended it for a 4 year old. She'll like the story. Has a definite religious connotation, but not overwhelming.
Beautiful story Sep 30, 2008
We bought this book for our 2 year old niece, Zoe. This is a book that both children and adults can love. The pictures are breathtaking. The story is wonderful too ~ about family and friends and a beautiful winter evening.
