  5 of 5 stars 1 read/write reviews

This strikingly beautiful book is illustrated by the renowned artist, Freiman Stoltzfus, who was raised Amish-Mennonite. It is a retelling of the First Christmas. Using the Gospels according to Saints Matthew and Luke, the book is set in the farmlands of the Amish community. The story is told through fraktur - the script of the early Pennsylvania Dutch (i.e., German) and illustrated with scenes from everyday Amish life.

5 of 5 stars Beautiful book!

I adore this book! Each page is beautifully done between the artistry and the fraktur text. Being a descendant of the Herr and Kauffman Mennonite line, it is an absolute treasure in our home. Donna Kauffman Huddleston
