Which angel visited the Mother of God? Which animals kept the little baby Jesus warm? What do the gifts that the Wise Men brought symbolize? Children learn about the birth of Christ through looking at the beautiful wall-paintings by Tzortzis from the main church of Dionysiou Monastery on Mount Athos. They also embark on a wonderful journey through the world of Byzantine art. An art that is close to children's souls, for it does not use shadow, perspective, divisions or time. Dionysiou Monastery kindly gave permission for these wonderful frescoes to be reproduced in the present edition. It is their hope that these icons will speak to the souls of our children.
