Favorite Christmas Stories


I wanted to share one of my FAVORITE Christmas books to read to the family.

The story of why we celebrate Christmas is so beautifully written by Carol Heyer.She makes the telling of this old familiar history into something the whole family can understand.You can really feel the truth and the joy that the author has for this time of year.

Carol Heyer is not only the author of this wonderful retelling of our Saviors birth.She is also the illustrator.The beautiful artwork is really what makes me love this book!

One of my favorite illustrations from the book is a picture of the shepherds that came to see and worship the Christ child:


There are so many wonderful books out there that can help us to share the joy and wonder of this Christmas season with our families!
