Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Ages 4^-8. A reverent retelling of the coming of Christ, this lovely picture book strings passages from the King James Version of the Bible along a simple, narrative strand of plain-spoken text. Full-and double-page oil paintings draw the eye with subtle colors and well-balanced compositions, with the text appearing on plain white pages, occasionally heralded by a small ink drawing of an angel. The subject is one of the most familiar in Western art, but Hogrogian brings her own engaging style to the familiar tableaux of the Annunciation, the Madonna and child, and Epiphany. Although characters resemble real people rather than creche figures, the scenes have a certain dignity that heightens the importance of every event and every gesture. A very appealing interpretation of the first Christmas. Carolyn Phelan
