The Story of Christmas

by Jane Ray

This is a really beautiful picture book of the Christmas story. I originally found it in Spanish, but discovered there is an English edition also. (I don't know if any of you ladies have reviewed it on your blogs/websites, but I wanted to share it here.)

Quote from Amazon review:

"An elegantly beautiful presentation of the text from Matthew and Luke (King James version), from the illustrator of an exceptionally handsome Noah's Ark (1990). Again blending warmly decorative folk motifs with a strong Middle Eastern flavor, Ray also recalls medieval illuminations with her rich colors and lavish use of gold." --Kirkus Associates
