A Child's Story of the Nativity

Christmas books just don't get any more beautiful than this!  Masha's illustrations are embellished with gold and the pages shine. 

illustrated by Masha 1943 

The story, adhering to scripture, starts with Mary as a young maiden. It's also one of the few versions that show the wise men visiting later, when Jesus is a bit older.  I love taking this one out to read and display every December.

  1. I have this book also and every picture radiates off the page. There is something very special about it.
