I am always interested in reading and reviewing children’s books, and I have really enjoyed other books by Max Lucado, so I was happy to receive a copy of The Christmas Story for Children to read and review.
This book tells the story of Jesus’ birth and his life – through his baptism by John.
I am not a big fan of the pictures used in this book. They aren’t cute at all, and they are a little bit scary.
How strong is the book?
This is a paperback book, but it seems relatively strong.
Who the book is for:
This book would be good for whole families to read together.
What I liked:
This book tells the story of the start of Jesus’ life in a way that is good for reading aloud – and it packs it all in one book.
The book is true to scripture.
What I didn’t like:
The illustrations bug me.
The story is dragged out a bit in a way that might make it too long for young children.
Overall, this is an okay book.
I give The Christmas Story for Children 3 out of 5 stars.
