Editorial Reviews

Review

"With a gentle, perfectly rhyming text, this cumulative tale presents the Nativity story in a beautifully illustrated version just right for younger children.” ―Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"This lovely picture book combines beautiful artwork and a seamless, thoughtful ‘The house that Jack' built style to tell the story of the Nativity. The rhyme is sweet but never forced. . . . A gentle, comforting selection.” ―School Library Journal

“The pace is just right for participatory read-alouds, and Bettoli's attractively patterned, gem-colored paintings amplify the sense of devotion and joy in scenes of winged angels and stars beaming love and light.” ―Booklist

About the Author

Cynthia Cotten has written several books for young readers, including This Is the Stable, Abbie in Stitches, At the Edge of the Woods and Snow Ponies. She grew up in Lockport, New York, a small town on the Erie Canal. She didn’t always know she wanted to be a writer―she dreamed of being a teacher, a marine biologist, a U.N. interpreter and a jockey―but she always loved reading. “My idea of the perfect summer vacation,” she says, “was to go to the library once a week, check out as many books as I could fit into my bike basket, and spend the rest of the week sitting someplace cool, reading.” Cotten lives in Montclair, Virginia.

Delana Bettoli studied art at Boston University and in Los Angeles. This is her tenth book for young readers. She lives at the foot of Oregon’s Cascade Range.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed! Not a Catholic Christian view...
Reviewed in the United States on November 18, 2021
This book have very impressive images. However, since it is related to the story of the Son of God, we should be very careful that there is no merging with other philosophies. After receiving the book my husband and I were really surprised with the images. The star of Bethlehem is ilustrated with a face and feathers, and mostly all the images have animals or feathers as part of the background.

We decided to check the illustrator website and that's how she describe her style: "My themes are spiritually satisfying puzzles of allegorical animals placed in landscapes of subtle conflict and unexpected beauty. Their spirits emerge..or fade, but always leave their mark." With all respect for her talent, but it isn't sound according to the scriptures of the prophets nor the Gospel.

We have to be aware of this kind of material that we present to our kids that can distort the truth of the Son of God's story.
