Just so you know…I received this book to review. Post contains affiliate links; opinions shared are mine.

Books about the birth of Jesus can sometimes be heavy on the downer meter. Many books on the miserable situation of trying to find a place to sleep for the night, the poor conditions of the stable in which Mary gave birth, and the meager supplies available to the baby Jesus. In contrast, the book Christmas Time by Sue M. Barksdale has a happy, upbeat look and rhythm.

Although we received this book to review in October, when we would normally be looking at Halloween stories, my son was immediately drawn to the bright illustrations. The swirling fonts and bouncy beat make the book stand out from other Christmas books for children. The book went on a little too long, which made my son lose interest midway through the first reading. After the second time, though, he was willing to sit through the entire book. I’m grateful that I had the chance to read Christmas Time. It was a fun way to talk with my kids about the birth of our Savior. At our family Christmas gatherings of my childhood, we always read from the book of Luke. This was a fun way to introduce that tradition to my own children.

Would you like to read Christmas Time?

  48. Corey Clancy says:

    I would love to read this with my daughters. On the week leading up to Christmas we read a different Christmas story every night. The Nativity storybook we have is the classic one and normally the girls do not pay much attention. This one looks like the same story but told in a way the children of today can more find appealing and be able to get into it. My husband even did ours in funny voices one year, still didn’t do any good.
