Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

A touch of girl power imbues Hoffman's (Amazing Grace) magical tale of three women from vastly different lands and cultures who find themselves united by the glorious event of Jesus' birth. Each compelled to follow the intense light of a special star, the three wise women reach Bethlehem not bearing extravagant material gifts like those of their male counterparts, but gifts from the heart: freshly baked bread, a story, a kissAgifts that will inspire Jesus throughout his life. The forceful and rich oil pastels provide a reverent yet mystical setting. Ages 4-8. (Oct.)

From School Library Journal

Grade 1-4-This variation of the Bible story describes how three women from different parts of the world travel to see the baby Jesus. Each of them is unsure why she feels compelled to follow the bright star, or even how she made the journey, but they all end up in a stable looking upon the sleeping infant. Each woman is moved to offer a gift-one gives a loaf of bread, one gives a story, and one gives a kiss from her young son whom she has carried with her. Readers are told that Jesus never forgot their gifts: he showed the world the joy of sharing fresh baked bread, he told wonderful stories, and he taught that the greatest gift is love. The lovely, luminous oil-pastel illustrations add richness to this flat, primarily message-driven story.-T.T.

Format: Hardcover
Three Wise Women, in its simplicity and color, retells the story of the visit by wise persons to the baby Jesus and the bringing of gifts that are human & practical...The gift of bread, of storytelling, and love shared! I am especially touched by this book because my 9 and 11 year old daughters found this book in our local bookstore and decided it was the perfect gift for their mother who is going on sabbatical. They recognized within its short reading that the women of the story are on a shared journey of the spirit. The illustrations,done in beautiful dark mystical colors, also lead you into this journeying. I am always looking for books for my girls and I to read that have strong female characters that look at life wholistically. Three Wise Women continues that collection for us. We also have a collection of Christmas books that have a home under the tree each year. The tradition of pulling them out each year and rereading the memories has made the stories become part of our collected memories of the season! Thanks for an excellent addition!

By Retired and loving it on February 6, 2010
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
After reading this book last year, I knew I just had to purchase two copies for my granddaughters. The three women who journey from various parts of the world to bring gifts to the newborn Child, truly understand the real meaning of Christmas. Their gifts, unlike the rich gifts of the Magi, are home baked bread, a kiss for the baby and a story . . all gifts that Jesus would use on his journey. It's definitely a must have for anyone's Christmas collection.
