#Review: The Three Gifts by Kathie Lee Gifford/ Illustrated by Michael Storrings #ChristmasSpirit #Christmas #Kidsbooks



Summary:
The Three Gifts, a gentle narrative poem that tells the story of the Angel messengers sent by the Lord to deliver three special gifts in celebration of the birth of the Baby Jesus. The last and most exceptional of the gifts contains a secret that holds a moving message for us all. 
Inspired by the Angel Blocks ornament collaboration between Kathie Lee and Michael Storring.


My review:
At first when I started reading this book I thought it was going to be a simple story of Christ's birth. In essence, it was but it was a bit more than that too.

The angels worshiped the newborn child and brought special gifts but the gift are not just for him but all of us to share as we would share the babe. That is a nice message to hear among the overall message. I liked that the angels had no facial features but still their special-ness was known due to their given mission.

It is a truly sweet story written in simple rhyme. The pages are done beautifully in water color which does nothing but enhance the story.

This book gets a 4 stars from me.

  1. I love books about Angels and I'm sure my grandchildren love them too because they always pick the books with the Angel pictures on them. This sounds delightful. thanks for sharing.
