The Christmas Story
by Jane Werner
Pictures by Eloise Wilkin
This is another story illustrated by Eloise Wilkin.
This book tells the Christmas story, the reason for the season. It starts with Mary, a girl of Galilee.
She lived long years ago, but such a wonderful thing happened to her that we remember and love her still.
It tells of their trip to Bethlehem and their trouble finding a place to stay.
It tells of the angels and the country shepherds in the field, keeping watch over their flocks by night.
It tells of the three wise men.
The child was called Jesus, the name given by the angel before he was born. And the child grew and became strong in spirit and full of wisdom. And the grace of God was upon him.
