Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The soft, creamy tones of Bernardin's (The Legend of the Candy Cane) oil paintings welcome readers to ancient Bethlehem for this familiar biblical account of the Nativity. His depiction of the angel's nighttime appearance to shepherds in the fields conveys the awe associated with the event yet to come, and portraits of beatific faces adoring the Christ child are also pleasant to behold. But on the whole, there is little to distinguish this book among many other editions in the marketplace. All ages.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1-This book opens with the tax levied by Caesar Augustus and ends with the shepherds spreading the word of what they have seen. Although readers meet Mary and Joseph and baby Jesus, the focus is on the shepherds, two men and a boy, as they react with amazement and joy to their experiences; the endpapers show them working their flock on a peaceful hillside. The paintings give a vivid sense of the landscape around Bethlehem and portray the people in a realistic and moving way. This is a fine choice if you need more Nativity stories.-E. M.

Format: Hardcover
This book is a wonderful addition to a Christmas (or anytime) book collection. The text is the familiar story from the Bible, accompanied with beautiful illustrations; my small children are captivated by the images, facial expressions, animals, and settings.
For parents who want to read the biblical text of the Christmas story to their children but want an illustrated form to read with their family -- or for anyone who appreciates gorgeous artwork accompanying the story -- this is a cherished book to have.
