I was a bit disappointed in this book. I love The Story of the Lord's Prayer by this author, but I am pretty particular about Biblical books that I read to my kids being accurate. It says "Wise men followed a star to the stable and Baby Jesus" and shows them in the stable with baby Jesus. Well, Jesus was in a house according to the Bible by the time the wise men arrived and he was likely about 2 years old (based on when the wise men told Herod they saw the star). This stereotype is so perpetuated by children's books but it isn't right. May I suggest Tell me the Christmas Story by Joni Walker which is also very well done and for little ones, but while mentioning the wise men, doesn't put them in the stable. My two cents!
