Adorable and so inviting!Review by Sonja
What a charming board book! Toddlers and parents and grandparents alike will be transported to the land of Jesus’ birth as they read the charming rhymes and examine the adorable details on each page. Jesus’ birth is good news, indeed! I especially loved the verse about the wise men, “trekking mile by mile.” It made me smile to read, “We’re off to see the new king, but it might take a while.” True! I loved the nod to the reality that the wise men were important to the story, but not at the manger with the shepherds. (Posted on 11/13/2019)

Little Town of Bethlehem…..Review by Tickmenot
This sweet book tells the Christmas story in picture and verse that is simple enough for little ones to understand, without losing any of the wonderful meaning of Jesus’ birth. Each double page proclaims something that is good news. For example:'


Coo the pigeons,
“we’ll make room in here.
And when you have your baby,
we’ll coo and flap and cheer!”

The lovely illustrations and attractive colors throughout the story with draw children’s eyes, while the verses containing the good news will grab their attention and delight their ears. This is a larger sized board-book that measures 7” by 7”, and is well-made to hold up to the work-out little hands will give it.

This volume is based on the Biblical Christmas story, especially Luke 2:10-11. It is a delightful way to introduce and welcome the Christmas story to small ones. As December 25th quickly approaches, this is a good time to get this 5-star book, although children will enjoy this story year-round. Its economical price makes this lovely book a great gift–I highly recommend it!

Impossible not to love!Review by Carol A.
Children's Christmas books are my favorites, and "Good News! It's Christmas" is my newest addition! Bringing the birth of Jesus to children in the rhyming verses they never get tired of, Glenys has a knack for presenting ALL her stories in a way that children are drawn to. Add the illustrations by Lizzie Walkley (personal favorites: the mouse peeking out between the donkey's ears, the twinkling stars, the light shining over the Christ Child, and the cat curled up by Mary's knees) and the birth of Jesus is displayed in such a beautiful and sweet way. What a wonderful Christmas gift for all the toddlers in your family! (Posted on 11/1/2019)
all of creation celebrates Jesus' birthReview by rev. abby
this is a beautiful book with gorgeous and culturally appropriate images that accompany accessible language. Good News! It's Christmas! incorporates how all parts of creation (from Mary and Joseph, from the animals and the angels) were waiting for God's love for us to be with us in Jesus. I'm looking forward to sharing this book with all my beloved little ones this Christmas. (Posted on 10/17/2019)
A beautiful and meaningful book to read to young children at Christmas time!Review by TheGingerLibrarian
This is a beautiful and meaningful book to read to young children at Christmas time! “Good News! It’s Christmas” contains the story of the birth of Jesus, Son of God, in the form of a well-flowing poem—with rhyming words at the at the end of every third and fifth lines of every section of text. The illustrations are very appealing with lovely colors, shading, and imagery. Also, the pages of the board book are thick (to prevent ripping or tearing) and glossy (easy to wipe clean).

I recommend this wonderful little picture book to all parents and teachers of preschool, kindergarten, and first grade level children.

Note: I received this book from NetGalley and the book's publisher and author in exchange for my honest review, for which I am very grateful. (Posted on 10/15/2019)
A Wonderful Christmas book for your little one!Review by ES
This book is such a gift for our family! It is an awesome way for us to enter into the Christmas story for the first time with our young son and our older daughter! We love that every stanza starts with the words "Good News"!! Told from the perspective of the characters in the Christmas story, using "Good News" as a theme helps us teach our children what Jesus' birth is all about and what it means for us! The editors and illustrator made some great choices with the illustrations as well - accurate skin tones, the manger is made of stone, and oil lamps as light sources! Very cool. Well done!
