The stories of Elizabeth, Mary, and Anna are told as they relate to the birth of Jesus. Elizabeth was considered too old when she became the mother of John the Baptist. Mary was the demure mother of Jesus. Anna was 84 years old and had lived in the temple many years when she saw the baby Jesus and proclaimed that this was the Messiah. Lovely colored illustrations accompany the text. This biblically based take on the three Wise Men is a unique telling of the Christmas story. While the Wise Men left their gifts with the baby Jesus, the Three wise women shared God's great Gift with the whole world. The emphasis of the story meets the current need for biblical models of women. Mothers and fathers will become aware of less well known parts of the Christmas story and share them with their children.
