Review: This is a wonderful book for encouraging children to realize that they can do important things no matter their size. Crystal may be one of the smallest angels in Heaven, but she ends up playing a hugely important role in the Nativity.
The story is easy to read, and the illustrations are beautiful. Portions of the story are not exactly Biblical, but that doesn't deter from the message of the story, in my opinion.
This would be a wonderful book to add to your library of Christmas tales.
