He can now recite the entire book which has nice simple language, unfussed and easy to follow, plus the detailed pictures of the fabulous models (I wonder how long it took for them all to be made...) allow for additional in-depth discussion as to what is going on "behind the scenes".
I wouldn't recommend it for much younger toddlers or those who are not good at opening flaps - they are small and can tear if not handled with a bit of care, although the quality of the paper is excellent, a bit thicker than some of the books we have bought and it would need a good yank to do real damage.
If you want a good, simple, fun and pleasing (especially the shiny angel pages) book I would really go for this one!
I don't know HOW they have made it so beautifully, the images look like they have created models, positioned and photographed them (as in Wallace & Grommit style).
There are plenty of flaps on every page to lift, and the story of Joseph & Mary is simply & sweetly told.
Including the shepherds being visited by angels, and the three wise men travelling on to Bethlehem.
The attention to detail is amazing & clever little touches like lizards behind bushes and cats on roofs - lovely.
Little fingers love it!
This is a book I have been reading to my son so many times since I purchased it last year.
Also every friend who sees the book want's to purchase it.
I have it for my 3 yr old but my sister will buy it for her 8yr old. We will keep it for years to come.
