Peace on Earth: A Christmas Collection by Mary Engelbreit

_225_350_Book.987.coverI surely wish with all my heart, This day of Jesus’ birth, That peace and love and happiness Soon cover all the earth.

Mary Engelbreit rings in the holiday with a Christmas collection that includes many of her favorite carols, the story of Jesus’ birth, and beloved poems that touch the heart and celebrate the miracle of the season

This is a really beautiful Christmas book for children filled with beautiful and colourful illustrations by Mary Engelbreit.  The book contains the Christmas story from Luke, along with seasonal poems and Christmas hymns, such as “The First Noel,” and “Silent Night.”

The bright colours and detailed illustrations will capture the interest of even the shortest attention span. My daughter, who usually just wants to flip quickly through books, had a great time pointing at all the images and even allowed me to read and sing to her from the book. 

The book itself is hard-cover with a gorgeously detailed jacket and 40 pages long.  It is geared towards kids 4-8 but honestly it is such a beautiful book I can see it becoming a memory maker and family keepsake to be read together every Christmas season.

Peace on Earth: A Christmas Collection is a wonderful addition to anyone’s Christmas library and is such a fun and entertaining way to introduce the Christmas story to readers of any age!
