Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The biblical story of the Nativity is one about faith, love--and a miracle. With illustrations that are enchanting and unexpected, Julie Vivas reveals the human side to Mary's story: beautifully imagining the Angel Gabriel delivering the news to her, the exhausting journey with Joseph to Bethlehem, and at last the deliverance of the baby Jesus.

First published in 1988, with text from the King James Version of the Bible, this Christmas classic is imbued with warmth and love in a stunning, redesigned edition that is sure to win the hearts of a whole new generation of young readers.

Wisco, December 22, 2006 (view all comments by Wisco)
This is my favorite Christmas book. I have been buying copies for almost 20 years. I've lost count of how many I've given away. Mary wears house slippers, the Angel Gabriel wears work boots, and Joseph shoves a cumbersome Mary up onto the donkey. A baby emerges. Illustrations such as these, juxtaposed with the King James text, call up discussion and exploration among children and adults. I prefer the riskier cover of the early version, but I will gladly share this edition for years to come. This is a beautiful book that shocks and makes people think. Reading it aloud to a group of adults is generally astonishing.
