Pamela Dalton's exquisite, intricate scissor-cut illustrations wonderfully illuminate the Story of Christmas. Deeply reverent, richly detailed, and teeming with life, Dalton's images follow the story of the Nativity from the appearance of the Angel to Mary in the Annunciation, to the shepherds who came to the humble manger to offer their love to the new-born child, and to the three wise men who followed the star from the East to pay respect for their new king. Working in a medium rooted in Pennsylvania-German folk-art tradition, made rich with lovingly rendered animals and figures, Pamela Dalton has created a book that takes a deserved place among the finest celebration of Christmas. The book features the King James version of the story.

The illustrations in this story are exquisite. Very enjoyable to view in detail. However, I do not recommend this book for children. "From the Critics" section lists it as appropriate for ages 4 to 8. However, while reading it to my children (4 and 6) I was constantly explaining or paraphrasing so they could understand what was happening. I realize that it is text from the King James Bible but I did not realize that the language would be so traditional and archaic. I would recommend this book to older audiences even though it is a picture book.
