    "This is a very good version for the reader that wants a lot of bells and whistles to go along with the original story. It has chapters that break down info on the characters and gobs of footnotes. As this is one of the most repeated Christmas stories in TV shows, movies, cartoons, and plays I only read the original story and my review is only on the story. How do you give a four star rating to such a beloved classic? It really isn't hard to read, but sometimes (really quite often) the descriptions and language get so flowery that you lose track of the story and have to go back and reread sections. You can't be in a room with a conversation going, the TV on, or music going because it requires undivided attention and I can't block out everything around me. Perhaps it took me a little longer than normal to read, but it was an enjoyable story that I love to hear over and over, and now have read."

    "This is a great solution. It breaks the story of Jesus birth down so that a child can understand it."

    "This is a solid and well written work by a talented author. This particular work has been assigned largely above-average reader reviews, with predominantly positive reader assessments pertaining to its readability, plot substance, character development and treatment, creativity and language usage. This book mixes the traditional fictional fixtures of Christmas (Santa, elves, reindeer, etc.) with a Christian gospel message that attempts to reach the real, true meaning of Christmas. Many readers felt that this book was too complex, and/or too long for very young (less than five to six year old) children. "

    ""Dance in the Desert" certainly is a book for children which also happens to be about Christmas and has numerous Christian connotations in it, understandably so. The only problem with this solution is that it was originally written in 1969 and the illustrations as well as the narrative might seem to be a bit dated for the modern children. "

    "We always have trouble finding ways to indoctrinate the children of the Liberals, but thanks to Barb's book, we've got a shortcut. What kid doesn't like Christmas? We've brought at least 10 kids into the church, using this to start grooming them. Brilliant!"

    "Every Christmas I add to out Christmas collection of books and this year I purchased this one by Catherine Stock. It was a great hit with my kids and it gave us a fun and different view on how others celebrate Christmas.
