* “This tender, poetic retelling of the age-old story takes the form of a whispered prayer as it highlights the nurturing given to babies of many species. The art and the words strike just the right tone of reverence and delight. A lovely offering.”—School Library Journal (starred)
"In Thompson’s poetic, reverent text, two voices tell of the night Jesus was born. This peaceful ode to parental love is just right for bedtime reading. Bean’s digitally colored pencil illustrations portray the calm nighttime scenes in black, beige, dark gray-blue, and a sprinkling of white. The gentle words are beautifully matched by the strikingly composed art; both are infused with meaning and are powerful in their simplicity."--The Horn Book

The second narrative feels almost like a prayer and reinforces the fact that someone is always watching out for us, wherever we are. It is a simple, beautiful message, and when it ends with "God's will be done", "Amen", the reader is left with a restful feeling that marks this as a great choice for a Christmas bedtime read.
The illustrations only add to the understated elegance, with their muted tones that perfectly evoke a starry night. Children will easily relate to their simplicity and be captivated by their charm. This is a great choice for any child's Christmas collection, especially young toddlers and preschoolers. A perfect gift idea and also a good choice as a read aloud for the very young. An enthusiastic recommend.
