I purchased two copies for my grandchildren and I'm so pleased I did. The author, Marion Thomas has accurately followed the true biblical event with short gospel readings on each page and has used language that children can easily understand. The artwork is stunning by award winning Italian illustrator, Martina Peluso. I highly recommend The Nativity for your little ones. The book would make a perfect Christmas gift.
