Many children's Christmas books are long on fancy and short on fact.
Most of them ignore the themes of the first Christmas and opt instead
for fairy tale settings or winter tableaus.
This beautifully illustrated book, a Gold Medallion Book Award
winner, fills the gap by presenting fresh insights into the Christmas
story from both the scriptural and secular context.
The book tells the story of a young boy Christopher, who no
longer wants to hear fairytales; he only wants real bedtime stories. So
his mother tells the amazing and miraculous story of Jesus' birth. Along
the way, Christopher learns the answers to some challenging questions
about the Christmas story. And all the answers are right from the Bible.
This book makes a wonderful gift for children, families, and friends.
