Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 1-3?A traditional version of the story of Jesus's birth from the point of view of Joseph, the man who "provided the earthly needs for the Baby and His mother." Told in dialogue with a you-are-there insight into Joseph's motivation, the story introduces a gentle man who, though visited frequently by angels who advise him about where to go and what to do, is just trying to supply the best shelter and care for his pregnant wife. Shepherds and kings admire the baby before Joseph takes his family to safety in Egypt where they live for several years until it is safe to return to Nazareth. The illustrations, done before the artist's death in 1953, have the quality of children's illustrated Bibles of that period. Glowing and idealized oil paintings portray a very traditional view of the people and places. Some of the them are incongruously placed. For example, after several years in Egypt, Jesus is still a baby.?AC

Format: Hardcover
This book is a wonderful look at Josephs' role in the Nativity Story. The book is complete with a map of Mary and Joseph's travels through the Holy Land along with Cultural Facts about the period in which the story takes place. The illustrations by Hinke are the traditional, rich paintings of the Holy Land, created in the early 1950's. Hinke was a wonderful artist that captured the simplicity and warmth of the setting in the manger. The story and the paintings work well together. I believe the story appeals to a wide range of readers, from ages 9 to 90. I really enjoyed reading this book.
