Long a favorite secular story, this has come to the next level: THE CHRISTMAS STORY, written beautifully, as only an author can that loves the message. Penny Stanley
I love this book both as a Mom and a Children’s Pastor. The rhyming is wonderful. The illustrations are gorgeous. The wording is child friendly and appropriate. I can’t wait to read this with my own children and for the Children’s Time at our Christmas Eve service. Rev Kathy

A wonderful new book by author Glenys Nellist, will be enjoyed by both children and adults. Peggy L. Manrose
If I could give this book ten stars, I would. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE how author Glenys Nellist brings us all back to the true heart of Christmas, giving the old familiar Christmas rhyme (that typically focuses on Santa)… a Christ-centered focus. J. Adams
Great book! I am using it for my elementary students at Timothy Christian School. I love the biblical message of the birth of Jesus. Kristi McInerney
This book is amazing! Where has it been all my life? Brittany
