When originally published in 1994, this elegant pop-up tableaux sold over 50,000 copies. Celebrate its miraculous rebirth with this beautiful three-dimensional presentation of the story of Christmas, complete with foil-stamped cover and golden ribbon tie.
A simple re-telling of the nativity story receives a strikingly handsome treatment, as special as Christmas itself. Every one of the six gilded and gloriously illustrated panoramas offers exquisitely crafted paperwork with windows that burst open to reveal such delicate, moving scenes as the Angel Gabriel attending Mary, the Holy Family in the manger, and the Three Wise Men worshipping the baby Jesus.
This timeless portrayal will once again become a necessary adornment under every tree.

Ages 5-8. The text, a very simple retelling of the nativity story, gets a handsome treatment in this pop-up book. Six gilded panoramas, using a medieval setting, feature the Holy Family attended by angels, shepherds, and wise men. While this may have its biggest success as a bookstore item, libraries that buy toy books will not be disappointed by the pretty offering. Ilene Cooper
