“It’s the night before Christmas and all through the world people gather to share stories, poems and music of this wondrous night.” Thus the narrator of ‘A Child’s Christmas in Bethlehem’ draws us into a magical recording that includes carols spanning seven centuries and five languages. Poems and stories take us from Bethlehem in the Holy Land, where we are present at the birth of Jesus as seen through a child’s eyes, to diverse Christmas traditions of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, in the present day.
