Borrow at least. You'll want to see for yourself before deciding whether or not to add it to your personal bookshelf.
Little Kid Reaction:
Review pending.
Big Kid Reaction:
This is a beautifully illustrated book and I love how it begins with the angel Gabriel visiting Mary, not just the last "leg" of her and Joseph's trip to the Inn. I could not help but think that this is more for collectors than children, though.
Pros:

Beautifully detailed illustrations make this a wonderful read-aloud choice for Advent.

Cons:

The quality of the book is such that you want to take extra special care of it ... it may appeal more to adult collectors and Sunday school teachers.
