    1. This is a very inspiring and beautiful story, even if it is for children. Reading this as an older person, I can read in between the lines, and I appreciate how the subject of communism was handled. I felt like the book showed what communism in Russia did to the peoples' lives, and I love how the story unfolded. I read this in preparation for a Sunday school lesson, and I think the kids will really enjoy it.


    2. I *love* this book! This one plus The Miraculous Child are my favorite Nativity (Christmas) books to read. I cry when I read this one as well even though I've read it numerous times. I still make my children sit and listen to me read it while we drink cocoa even though they are older now.



    3. This is a lovely book. It makes a great St. Nicholas Day gift or Christmas gift. I don't remember when we bought it or for how long we've been reading it, but it's a family favorite.


    4. This book brought to our Christmas conversations the question of what would it be like if we did not have the freedom to worship where we want to.


    5. very good picture book set in Russia after the Soviet Union. Lovely pictures, attention to detail, a story that made tears spring to my eyes.
