From the series “Scriptures and Feasts for Children.” This book about the feast of the Nativity of Christ is designed for parents to read to their children aged 2-8, although smaller children will still enjoy the illustrations. It recounts the story of the Savior's birth in a simple and clear way, while sticking close to the text of the Gospel.
In addition to the text, the book also has beautiful illustrations by Olga Podivilova on almost every page to help even the youngest children absorb as much of the story as possible. The book also explains some of the traditions about how we celebrate the Nativity and gives a few simple carols and poems for parents to sing with their children. The last section of the book is called “How to read to children about Christ's Nativity,” and contains some advice on how to teach small children about the Incarnation of the Son of God.
