Book Review and Giveaway- The Christmas Journey by Donna VanLiere

The Christmas JourneyThe Christmas Journey by Donna VanLiere

I love the design of this small book. It is filled with beautiful watercolor illustrations  and a beautiful story. VanLiere has written a realistic view of Mary and Joseph's  arduous journey to Bethlehem. You get a better understanding of what it must have been like and makes them feel much more real. 

I really mean small book, by the way. It only took about half an hour to read but will definitely be reread again and again each Christmas. It has definitely gotten me into the spirit of the holiday and I believe, sometimes, it is good to remind ourselves what Christmas is all about.
