Enchanting view of a familiar tale
6 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We all know the story-- no spoiler warning needed here. What a great animated short film-- the music is captivating and the rhyme reminds me of Twas the Night Before Christmas. Andy Griffith is a great choice for narrator. My daughter loves it and that's probably the best predictor of a movie's popularity in our house. She loves to play with her toys and then take a 23 minute break and watch this movie. The film is honest, funny, and purely enjoyable. What a great way to introduce my children to the birth of Christ. My only gripe is that I wish it was longer. I hoped it would be more of a feature film length than merely 23 minutes.
