    "I think that this is a good Christian book and a great lesson for a family to share with their child when trying to explain the true meaning of Christmas in their religion. A fun way to approach something that so many Christians seem to have a hard time doing. "

    "I wasn't a big fan of this, but as a gift for a new Christian parent, it was a good option. I liked the illustrations and the style, and it felt very nice to flip through, so it could be worse. Overall, not bad."
