Our family loves Once Upon a Christmas! How awesome that this is now available on CD, DVD, and Blu-ray! We really enjoyed the talented performers and musicians. Listening to #14 Luke 2: The Christmas Story told by Jane Seymour was so powerful and touching. The Mormon Tabernacle Choir always does a fantastic job. This is for sure at the top of our Christmas favorites list!

Next I'm excited to tell you about the children’s book, Good King Wenceslas!


One snowy evening, when the rest of the kingdom is reveling in a celebratory feast, a king and his faithful page venture out to deliver food, wood, and comfort to a poor peasant family. "Good King Wenceslas" is the beloved Christmas carol that relates this tender story, and it is brought to life in this book and DVD by actress Jane Seymour and artist Omar Rayyan. The sumptuous illustrations reflect the medieval setting of this tale, capturing the lavish Feast of St. Stephen at the castle and the arduous trek through heavy snow to a humble cottage deep within the forest. The original lyrics to the song, set to music more than 150 years ago, are interwoven throughout the story. The actions of the kind, humble Bohemian king reflect the invitation of another King to follow in His footsteps, bringing the blessings of Christmas to all of His kingdom.

We really like that this book includes a DVD featuring Jane Seymour's narration of this classic story, performed with the world-acclaimed Mormon Tabernacle Choir. Also included is an introduction by Jane Seymour and an original illustration created by her especially for this book. The pictures are great and really help bring the story alive. What a wonderful book to add to your Christmas collection!
