Their comments:

" This is an excellent illustrated Christmas book, the story is - of course "the First Noel" the Nativity of Christ. And it has a cd of Elvis singing "the First Noel" Other than the cd, there is nothing Elvis about this. And that is why it has a 5 rating. If it were listed as a Christmas Book, I would definitely rated it higher just for the beautiful illustrations! However, if you want to start an Elvis Christmas tradition, gather family around, pop in the CD, hold the book out and flip the pages as Elvis sings. no one sings a Christmas song like Elvis. "
