Long ago in the town of Bethlehem, on a bright and starry night, a baby was born, a child who was called the son of God. Announced by an angel, born in a humble manger, laid in a bed of straw, visited by shepherds and wise men—the age-old, awe-inspiring story of the birth of Jesus is lovingly brought to life by master pop-up artist Robert Sabuda in six gorgeously imagined scenes, culminating in a 3-D manger sheltering humans and beasts, guarded by an angel above. Glinting with touches of gold and pearlescent foil, The Christmas Story is a visual feast, a holiday treasure to be shared with the whole family.
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
As in 2011’s Chanukah Lights, the elaborate pop-ups that Sabuda crafts in this striking pop-up retelling of the Nativity story are constructed almost entirely from plain white paper, save for a few gold accents...the resulting structures have a stark power.
Sabuda is no stranger to holiday pop-up books...The paper engineering is, as always, impressive.
The detail and fullness of each scene brings the Nativity to life in this book that is sure to become a family holiday treasure in homes around the world.
