The First Christmas According to Luke This book's text comes from Luke chapters 1 and 2 and has beautiful illustrations. I've read it to younger son every night for the last few weeks. The best part is when we sing Glory to God in the Highest, but we sing in Arabic. I love to hear younger son singing along. We sang Far Far Away on Judea's Plains in church on Sunday and the boys were belting it out in Arabic.
Bright Christmas This is told from an angel's point of view and also has beautiful and authentic illustrations.
The Christmas Miracle of Jonathan Toomey is the story of an irritable woodcarver who is commissioned to carve a nativity set for a widow and her child. A little predictable, but still a good one to read.
So Many Gifts is a different take on Santa Claus, and one that I like a lot. Since I still believe in Santa, I really like this one.
