|With a desire to teach her family about the greatest gift and the grace of Christmas giving, author and teacher Linda Crosland naturally turned to her ability and love for story telling. Though a portion of the title is borrowed from Clement Moore’s beloved Christmas classic, this story leads the reader on quite another journey. A world famous couple, a villainous king, mysterious men of wealth from the East, angels and God himself all take their place on the stage of history to introduce the greatest example of giving known to mankind, the birth of the baby Jesus. Share the drama as the story unfolds through each page of original art and verse, written in a delightfully contemporary way.|

It tells the true meaning of Christmas in a way for both children and adults to enjoy. The pictures and coloring add to the depiction of the story. I gave copies in hopes it would start a tradition to be passed on.
