The intense story of Christmas time, from the Annunciation to the journey of the Three Wise Men. A journey that guides children to Christmas, remembering the characters who most closely experienced the first Christmas in history: Mary and Joseph, Zacharias, Elisabetta, the angels, the shepherds and the Three Wise Men. Born from the Gospels, this story starts from the announcement of the angel Gabriel to Mary, chosen to be the mother of the "Son of the Most High", to commemorate Joseph's generous yes and Mary's visit to her cousin Elizabeth. Franco Vignazia's decisive stroke accompanies with his illustrations the journey of Mary and Joseph to Bethlehem in the days when Jesus is about to be born, up to the dim light that illuminates the manger in which Mary gives birth to the Child. Poor shepherds will be the first to receive the angel's announcement: "Today a Savior is born for you in the city of David". This birth sets the Three Wise Men on a journey, who travel from the East to Jerusalem and silently bring their gifts - gold, incense and myrrh - to Jesus.
