I happened to stumble across it one day while I was weeding my library's Juvenile collection (needless to say, this book stayed!)

I would say this book can be for adults as well as children. Beautifully illustrated. A very touching book for the holiday season. Asking Mary did she know how the birth of her child would effect the world and eternity? EXCELLENT

My kindergarten class did a Mass based on this book, they themselves had come up with very similar questions. Did Mary know everything? This book really makes one think, and such beautiful questions.

The words to this Mark Lowry song are awesome enough, and, to add the beautiful pictures makes this book a must have. We have a continuous check out of this book from our church library, and will be purchasing it for our daughter's next birthday!

This beautifully illustrated book is a keepsake item that the receiver will treasure for years to come. The story of Mary and Jesus' first hours together is so tender and meaningful to all who are familiar with this event. It's really hard to describe the impact this book has. It is a companion and expansion to the Christmas Song "Mary, Did You Know?", written by Mark Lowry.

If you have ever heard the beautiful song, "Mary Did You Know?" then you can truely understand the excellence of this book. The illustrations are magnificant giving a young child more understanding to the words of the song. It also inspires us older people as well. I just shared this book with the members of my choir and am back here tonight ordering many of them a copy. It is an excellent book for this wonderful time of the year to be able to sit back and reflect rather than get caught up in all the hustle and bustle of the holidays. Enjoy and God Bless.

An absolutely gorgeous picture book that features the words to Mark Lowry's popular Christmas song, "Mary, Did You Know?" This book is simply stunning. I happened to stumble across it one day while I was weeding my library's Juvenile collection (needless to say, this book stayed!) The illustrations so captivated me, I read it on the spot.

The short and simple text make this story a great pick for very young children, and yet the words are so profound that this book can be genuniely enjoyed by all. A great pick during Christmas time for the entire family! 6 Stars

This is a delightful book with stunning illustrations. I'm a huge, huge fan of Mark Lowry, and bought all the Homecoming videos which featured him. The song "Mary, Did You Know?" is one of my favorite Christmas songs. I'm glad that Mark Lowry has brought out such a wonderful book based on this special song.

It's a collector's dream come true!

It is so excellent in pictures painting the picture of what scripture said Mary eventually found out as the time of her Son/Savior lived on this earth to the fullest of HIS perfectness and obedience. The pictures ought to be in a gallery. Each page wording is totally focus on God's Son and I am in ah of what God did with the purpose of this book. It makes you want to go back and read the whole bible.
