The two-year-old I watch and I just enjoyed this book together. What a sweet story to read at Christmas time.
One thing I loved about this book was the focus - not on the presents, at all! This whole book was thanking God for ALL the gifts He provided at Christmas time - the very first Christmas! I thought it was a great way to introduce this type of prayer to young ones, too. Not a "gimme gimme" prayer... just THANK YOU God for all you have given already!! So cool!
The illustrations were a little odd for me. Cute and whimsical, I just didn't feel they were as engaging as other books I adore! Not a deal-breaker, just my two cents :).
