This is a sweet story worth reading, but I don't think I would use it as a read aloud or even include it in my classroom library because many of the words used are so far beyond most students, even upper elementary students and me! It is a hard book to read out loud because some of the words are so big or even altogether unfamiliar. I would rate this book a 2 for classroom appropriateness.

This is an interesting take on the Christmas story. It is not Biblically based, but the true meaning of Christmas is incorporated throughout the story. I would recommend this book as one of many options for a classroom library during the holiday season.

This is an adorable story with beautiful illustrations. A welcome addition to my holiday story collection.

The littlest angel is only 4 years old when he enters heaven. As such, he doesn't quite acclimate well. He's a bit dirty, a bit mussy, and he can't even fly. Finally he goes to see the Understanding Angel who retrieves a box he left on earth and suddenly the littlest angel is so much happier. Then God starts accepting gifts for the Christ child - whatever will the littlest angel give? Brought tears to my eyes.

My family's favorite Christmas story when growing up. Read aloud every Christmas Eve. Sweet story.
