Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this lovely book, originally published in 1916, illustrator Margaret Evans Price and author Isabel C. Byrum beautifully tell the Christmas story, from the baby in the manger, surrounded by animals, to the arrival of the three wise men.  The story, from the point of view of a child, is sweet and sincere and the accompanying illustrations exquisite.

The narrator, Ethel opens the story:  “In Bethlehem, Ive heard them say, Upon a Christmas morn, Within a stable rough and rude, a tiny babe was born.”

We continue in this vein as Ethel reflects upon the feelings of Mary and Joseph, the shepherds awakened by angels, the Wise Men following their star and of course Baby Jesus.  The style of the interiors and clothing is more 1910s than Biblical, but so lovely and stylish that we are indifferent to the anachronism.

A Childs Christmas Story is a tender introduction to the nativity story for any early reader, and a perfect holiday gift.

About the Author

Maragret Evans Price (1888 - 1973) was a prolific and talented artist who wrote and illustrated many children's books in a long and illustrious career spanning the 1910s through the 1950s.  Married to Irving Price, who founded the Fisher-Price toy company, her illustrations also served as the basis for some of their first products.
