Publisher Comments:

La historia del nacimiento de Jesús es contada aquí, en Primera Navidad, por Zeke, el fiel e incansable burrito de José. Zeke nos ofrece su versión de los hechos hasta el maravilloso momento del nacimiento del Niño Jesús, a través de hermosos y divertidos versos. Así lo cuenta él al final de la historia: Qué noche inolvidable aquella que vivimos, cuando el Niño Jesús y yo nos conocimos. La historia ha sido ilustrada hermosamente por Adel Nassief, un talentoso y reconocido artista de la tradición cóptica cristiana que vive y trabaja en Alejandría, Egipto. Su trabajo, que consiste de veintiuna piezas en el estilo de íconos cópticos, le da vida a esta historia como nunca antes y le da a la narrativa poética de Zeke tanto profundidad como dignidad. Primera Navidad deleitará a adultos y a niños por igual. Es la historia ideal para compartir en familia durante la Navidad; la historia ideal para leerles a los niños al irse a la cama en Nochebuena; la historia ideal para recordarnos el verdadero sentido de la Navidad. A pesar de todo el ajetreo y distracción de la Navidad moderna, Primera Navidad nos regresa a un tiempo muy especial, hace más de dos mil años, cuando el nacimiento de un niñito en un humilde establo nos trajo nuevas esperanzas y cambió nuestro mundo para siempre. Impreso con un hermoso color dorado adicional y encuadernado en tela, con la imagen tratada a mano y estampada en metálico, Primera Navidad está destinado a ser un clásico navideño.

Synopsis:

The story of the first Christmas is one of the most beloved of all time. It has been retold in song, worship, art, and poetry. Now told from the point of view of Ezekial (Zeke for short), Joseph's trusty donkey who helps him with his work as a carpenter, carries Mary to Bethlehem, and is present in the manger for the birth of Jesus. The First Christmas is written in anapestic tetrameter--the same upbeat, playful, and rhyming rhythm as The Night Before Christmas and much of the poetry by Dr. Seuss. It has a galloping nature that quickly moves the story along, and is a rhythm that children enjoy. Artist Adel Nassief works in the ancient traditon of Coptic Christian iconography. The iconic art tradition of Coptic Christians--founded and based in Egypt--can be traced back to at least the 3rd century AD. He has created 21 original Coptic icons to accompany this story. Painted with tempura and gold leaf on wood panels, these magnificent works of original art give the book a timeless and classic quality to be cherished by children and adults alike. Together, Alistair Macdonald's gentle re-telling of The First Christmas and Adel Nassief's striking art, the book is an excellent gift to share with family on Christmas Eve to quiet childrens' spirits and instill in them the real wonder of Christmas.

About the Author

Hace casi veinticinco años, el autor Alastair Macdonald estaba buscando un libro ilustrado que contara la historia del nacimiento de Jesucristo para leérsela a sus niños. Como no encontraba

exactamente lo que buscaba, decidió contar la historia con sus propias palabras, un relato que las familias y los niños pudieran compartir. Macdonald vive con su familia en Bermudas.

Adel Nassief creó las pinturas para Primera Navidad en el estilo cóptico tradicional, sobre una tabla de madera con témpera y láminas de oro. En el arte cóptico, los íconos se consideran “escritos” más que pintados ya que su creación requiere de la oración y de una valoración espiritual así como de un

esfuerzo artístico. Él vive con su familia en Alejandría, Egipto.

Yanitzia Canetti tradujo la obra al español. Es presidenta de la editorial Cambridge BrickHouse, Inc. Ha publicado más de treinta libros de diversos géneros: novela, poesía, cuentos cortos, teatro y literatura para niños. Canetti, que habla español, italiano e inglés, tradujo más de cien libros, incluyendo clásicos de la literatura infantil.
