5 StarsCaptures the real spirit of Christmas ~ Kat Hassard "boomer_mom" (Saratoga, CA)
This little book with detailed and charming drawings captures the joy and peace of Christmas. I lingered over the details and colors in the pages as all the wonders of the birth of Christ plus the meaning of his life are presented in simplicity for the young child. The book, of course, is for the early reader and is a great way for a child to improve his or her reading skills. If your looking for gift that will be a family treasure for years to come, this is the book!

5 StarsI love this book ! ~ N. Gillis (Modesto, CA)
Share reading with your child...this is a gem of a Christmas story for your child. Every page has meaningful words and beautiful drawings to share the true meaning of Jesus' birth. The richness if the colors and details on each page are rare for this very reasonably priced storybook. As a christian mother and grandmother I was so glad to have this book in our family. I highly recommend it and gifted each elementary child in our church school this past Christmas with this book.

5 StarsA real gem ~ Chuck (Fremont, CA)
This is a read-aloud book about the Christ child as described, page by page, with each letter of the word CHRISTMAS. But there is much more because every turn of the page reveals a beautiful, cheery illustration. This book is a gem that is perfect for reading to your young child as you snuggle together on a cold, winter night by the fire.

5 StarsJoan L. Sampson
I know the author and she has wanted to do this book for a long time and it is an outstanding work. The illustrations are first rate and the story is very well done.

Written and illustrated by N.J. Weiskal

This is a story about PATIENCE and TRUST that will appeal to very young children who still like to have someone read picture stories to them, and to children who enjoy reading the stories themselves. Parents will find it helpful when discussing the reasons for adopting a new pet from a shelter. The school children I have read it to have been very responsive to both the story and the pictures. I hope you will enjoy it. ~ N. J. Weiskal

5 starsPeter Ellis
This is a wonderful book for a child. Written at eye level for a little boy or girl, Ms. Weiskal demonstrates how to win the trust of animals by being patient and calm, imparting a lesson without teaching, written in an easy story telling style. The book is a masterpiece in miniature, or simply put, a book children will come back to, again and again. Easy to read and yet wise.
