Editorial Reviews

This is brilliant. As you investigate the facts of the Christmas story you will be intrigued, informed and amazed at what really happened. And best of all, you will discover why Jesus is still worth celebrating today. -- Jonty Allcock (Author, Happily Ever After, Impossible Commands, Upside Down series)

"All About Christmas" is the sort of book I would have spent endless hours poring over as a kid. Alison Mitchell weaves the biblical accounts of the first Christmas together with maps, diagrams, photos, and loads of fun facts to create a beautiful book that grounds the good news of Jesus' birth in living, breathing history. I can't wait to start handing this book out to my students! -- Chris Morphew (Author, Best News Ever, Why Does God Let Bad Things Happen?)

Alison Mitchell roots Christmas in facts—fun facts, cool facts, amazing facts, but all of them true facts! This bright, colorful, and engaging book anchors the good news of Jesus’ birth in history and spreads a Christmas feast for hungry eyes, minds, and hearts! -- Champ Thornton (Author, The Radical Book for Kids, Wonders of His Love)

This is brilliant. As you investigate the facts of the Christmas story you will be intrigued, informed and amazed at what really happened. And best of all, you will discover why Jesus is still worth celebrating today. -- Jonty Allcock (Pastor of Globe Church, London; author of Lost, Hero and Fearless)

What an interesting and exciting book this is! Alison Mitchell has created a wonderfully accessible, fascinatingly fun, all-ages adventure into the biblical experience of Christmas. You’ll want to share this one with your whole family all year long. -- Mike Nappa (Bestselling and award-winning Children’s Author (Bibleman Bible Storybook; Welcome to BibleWorld))

"All About Christmas" is the perfect book for everything you and your children need to know about the birth of Jesus! Chock full of amazing pictures and facts and figures. Just wonderful! -- Bob Hartman (Author, The Prisoners, The Earthquake, and the Midnight Song)

Is the story of Jesus just make-believe? "All About Christmas" digs into the facts to show kids that Jesus is real. Each colorful page invites your family to discover that the Bible is God’s true word. -- Barbara Reaoch (Author, A Jesus Easter and A Jesus Christmas)

What I love about book is that it helps children to grasp not only the context of the Christmas story but also the reality that it is not just a story or a fairytale but that it is a true event in history. In this engaging and colourful book children have all of the facts at their fingertips to allow them to come to this conclusion for themselves. A perfect gift for those children who love to learn and gather information on the “whys” and “hows” of a story! -- Victoria Jackson (Children’s Ministry Development Officer, Connor Diocese of the Church of Ireland)

An excellent book with lots of information on each page, but so easy to read. There is great focus on the biblical account but also interesting facts about life in Bible times and Christmas traditions today. Alison sets things straight about those parts of the Christmas story we know to be true and the parts that have become accepted as true (e.g., the stable, three kings.) Children will love it. -- Angie McKee (Education Department, Child Evangelism Fellowship of Ireland)
