I don't usually write reviews, especially not poor ones, but I was disappointed at the many variations from the Biblical story of Jesus' birth in these books. I read the other negative reviews, and was expecting (hoping) for a fun account of the nativity story, written with children in mind, and with added detail where detail is not given in the Bible. But these books changed parts of the story that ARE written clearly in the Bible, as well as embellishing to a level that I was not comfortable with. I'll attach pictures below.
On the positive side, it is a neat little set, and I love the cute little books and they way they fit into the holder. And the price is great (it was around $10 for the "paperback" version, which I believe is the same as all the others - a paper and board book cover, with 24 small board books inside). So instead of returning it, I am choosing to use it as an advent "kit" and will be recovering the books with a more accurate children's version of the Nativity story.

Sorryyy
This was a nice addition to our Advent wreath tradition this year with our three girls, ages 9, 7, and 3. All the kids actually paid attention to these stories and enjoyed the pictures, too. The books are not in order, much like any Advent calendar, which is frustrating to adults but the kids had fun finding the correct number for the day. The books are good quality and you can hang them on the Christmas tree after reading if you wish. The tabs that hold the books in get bent easily but that's how it is with any of these styles of books. We just cautioned our kids to be very gently and accepted the inevitable creases. We were still able to put them all back and have them stay there by the end of the season. As for the story, it is just that. A story. There are little inaccuracies here and there, but nothing significant that I feel detracts from the overall biblical Christmas story. Hopefully your children are getting to know the Christmas story from more than just this little display of books! It is more like any kids book or movie where they fill in with extra dialogue and such where the Bible doesn't necessarily say exactly that. Afterall, Joseph never said a word in the Bible but I've seen so many stories and movies where Joseph is the one asking for a place to stay and comforting Mary with his words. I wouldn't consider that anti-biblical. To each their own, though. We thought this book collection was nice with great illustrations and meaningful content. Our little Catholic kiddos loved them!

I really wished I would have read the other reviews before ordering. It's a shame I had to return, the book is really well done and very cute. However, I'm not sure which version of the Bible this Story of Christmas was taken from. The parts concerning the wisemen were way off and no where in the Bible does it mention the names of the wisemen. If you don't mind having someone add their input and adlib the Christmas story, then maybe this is for you.

Friends of ours gave us this years ago and it's a Christmas tradition we have loved. This is a set of 24 books that tell the story of Mary and Joseph's trip to Bethlehem, about the wise men, and about Christ's birth. One book is read per day starting on December 1st, leading up to Christmas Eve when the last (and largest) book is read. We let our two kids take turns each night picking out that day's book and placing it on the tree as an ornament after we've read it. When they were little, we'd read it to them. Now that they are older, the one whose turn it is reads the book out loud. We like it so much, when I found this on Amazon I purchased two to give to friends for next December.
Like others have said, it's fair to warn that this doesn't follow the Bible account to the letter - there are definitely some liberties taken. It isn't anything offensive, I feel like, but I could see it bothering some people and this set would not be good for you if you prefer a purely scripture account. I do know there are a few parts that make me squirm a little because it isn't really what we believe. For those parts, we've taken that to be a teaching moment, using the stories as kind of a jumping off point to insert some of our personal beliefs. It's worked for us, leading to some interesting discussions with our kids. We've found it to be a way we can concentrate on Christ during the season, instead of Christmas trees, presents, and Santa. I'm excited to share these when December rolls around.

Used this as part of our Christmas tradition and LOVED it. Will definitely do each year. Great way to introduce the story of Christmas to even the youngest children. We didn't hang the tiny books on the tree, although that could be cute. We read them before we did our advent wreath. Kids liked it and it was just enough of the story for them. Great because it could be done alone as a sole activity or tie nicely to bible reading or advent reading.

I love the idea behind this, but I wish they had stuck to the actual scriptures. Some things in this are completely made up. I still use it, but I have to tell my kids which are true and which are made up and we don't really know.

Love this! Bought it last year but this is the first year we've used it. Each book tells short pieces of the story. Short enough to
Hold to toddlers interest but also enough information where they ask questions. They love that each day after we read it they can hang it on the Christmas tree too. We had one like this when I was a kid.

This book is amazing. With two young kids, I struggled to figure out how to teach them the true meaning of Christmas. In looking up and researching advent calendars, most of them just had to do with chocolate, which I didn't want to give my kids every single day. This story of Christmas got them excited every night to read 'one of the tiny books' that they eagerly listened to, and then promptly hung on the tree after the story since each little book is actually a Christmas tree ornament. Great family tradition in the making. And the books are sturdy- so they'll last quite a few years I'm betting.
