Editorial Reviews


This tender Nativity story begins with the birth of Jesus and ends with the Holy Family leaving the stable. In succeeding pages, a patterned text focuses on one aspect of the baby (his fingers or mouth, for example) and then shows Jesus as an adult using his fingers as a carpenter or his mouth in speaking and teaching. The rhyming text is gentle and soothing, even while showing the adult Jesus at the Last Supper and in the Garden of Gethsemane. The poetic story will be accessible to very young children, though they will need some assistance from an adult in understanding the nonlinear structure of the text. Noonan's illustrations use soft colors that complement the style of the text, with many appealing views of Baby Jesus and his parents on the first Christmas Day. (Picture book/religion. 3-7) -- Kirkus Reviews <br><br> (Kirkus Reviews)

This is the kind of text that works with your youngest child, soothing and anticipating the rhythm. But it works with your oldest kid, too, and with you. There are so many books about the birth of Jesus, but this is the first I've seen which connects the birth to all the deeper meaning of the adult Jesus. Simply beautiful!

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Jennifer Bogart on December 5, 2009
Format: Hardcover
Not only is Jesus' birth one of the most amazing events in all of history, but the story of the nativity is also one of the most beloved and oft-related tales from the past that we share with our children. With this in mind, and with the countless picture books already available on the market that recall and recount His birth, one might wonder if there's a need for another story focused upon the nativity.

It's true that Dandi Daley Mackall's Tiny Baby Jesus may have been repetitive if it were a straight-forward retelling of the story of Jesus' birth, but, thankfully, this title has even more to offer us. Mackall's text alternates sweet descriptions of the infant God that correspond to parallel descriptions of His adult life. For instance, one page reads, "Tiny baby Jesus, eyes so clear and bright. Wise men seek the newborn King on this starry night." While the next page responds with, "Tender eyes of Jesus see the needs of man. Jesus offers peace on earth as only Jesus can. These scenes drawing connections between Jesus' life as a baby and his ministry as an adult, culminate in His ultimate act of redemption (no illustrations of the crucifixion are included).

Mackall's rhyming text is accompanied by soft, classic illustrations from accomplished illustration Julia Noonan that play a vital role in providing the supporting framework for the chronology of the story. From the two-page spread on the interior cover that shows a bright star over a distant Bethlehem, the next spread which shows Joseph leading Mary on a donkey, to the dedication page which shows Mary with swaddling clothes in-hand to wrap her new child - the stage is set. The illustrations continue to move us through Jesus' life as an infant, culminating with His departure from the stable with Mary and Joseph.

A friend recommended this to me for my grandsons. It is a wonderful way to tell the story of Jesus and the pictures are so lifelike. It is wonderful.
