Ages 2-5. This delicately illustrated lullaby imagines what Mary might have sung to Jesus in the manger. Each page, addressed to the newborn, describes how an abundant world of animals and plants celebrates the child's birth: "Cherry tree / With branches bending / Offers cherries / Ripe and red. / Spider spins / A silken blanket, / Lays it on your / Manger bed." The addition of a musical score would have been a nice touch, but parents will likely come up with their own tune for this elegant, rhyming song that's expanded in glittering, detailed illustrations reminiscent of illuminated manuscripts. Gold borders filled with botanical ornaments frame soft, colorful nature scenes depicting joyous creatures mingling with the loving family. Although the author cites Christmas miracle tales as her inspiration, her soothing poem never mentions Jesus by name, emphasizing instead the love and astonishment that a new mother feels for her child. Young ones from diverse backgrounds will find themselves celebrated in this universal, joyful song. Gillian Engberg
