If you’re looking for a board book to help your children understand the Christmas story of the birth of Jesus, The Christmas Story, by Patricia A. Pingry and illustrated by Wendy Edelson, is a great choice. Taking a picture walk through the book first can help children understand the story before it’s read. It’s also fun to use the pictures as prompts so children can re-tell the story after it’s been read several times. This book would make a great gift to families with toddlers and preschoolers.
