Christmas Time 

It's All About Jesus

About the Book

This fun children's book is a great addition to your Christmas library.  The text lyrically tells the Biblical account of the birth of the Savior, verses are reflected from the Matthew and Luke telling of Jesus' birth. The illustrations add so much vibrancy to the pages that kids of all ages are fully engaged and ready to hear the story. 

A wonderful bonus is that the back of the book has some great Christmas family devotions that include a prayer and activity.

Why We Like It

My kids loved this book for the illustrations.  Alicia T Young did an outstanding job of really filling the pages with pictures that attract children.  The people are adorable, the animals appear friendly and there is just enough color that even little eyes are drawn to it. 

I loved the book for two reasons really.  One, it was clear that story is based on scripture.  While we do read directly from the Bible each year with our kids as we tell them the history of Jesus' birth, they are still young and tend to pay very little attention, if any at all.  This story held their attention, and was Biblical sound.   Two, I love the devotions in the back.  They are quick, and easy to do with our family - which includes a grade schooler, a preschooler and a toddler.  So if we can manage to get through the devotions, and bring the Truth of the story out, is a major win!
