Back of Book:
Here is a beautiful retelling of the birth of Jesus on that joyous night in Bethlehem so long ago. The poem begins with the arrival of Mary and Joseph in Bethlehem through Christ’s birth, the angels’ appearance to the shepherds, and the visit by the Wise Men.
This is among my favorite stories to read during the Christmas season. It is written in the same poem as Twas the Night Before Christmas. This book tells the story of Christs birth in a simple yet incredibly poetic way. The illustrations are among the finest that are around. They are truly stunning and bring each small detail to life. The back of the story has the scriptures in the bible that tell the story of Jesus. I was very excited to see this book in the Scholastic catelogs last Christmas.
