Read full description of the books Story of the Three Wise Kings:This is classic dePaola for older children. The paintings are beautiful and still somewhat simple. It tells the story of the Three Wise Kings who visited Jesus as a young child. They followed the star, visited Herod, found and showed reverence to the young king, then followed the warning in a dream to return to their countries another way.
I use this book over and over in my classes for Epiphany. It is beautifully told and illustrated and clearly written. I especially love the forward in which Mr. dePaola explains that he painted Mary and Jesus in the traditional pose "Seat of Wisdom, Throne of Justice." In this way, his readers learn even more about art and history.
