Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carlee Hallman
The Christmas story is illustrated using the text from Luke 2:1-20 of the King James Bible. The two page spread for "...there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus" shows people looking at a notice on a wall. Later Mary rides a donkey as she and Joseph travel toward Bethlehem. The newborn Jesus is shown crying as Mary and Joseph stand by. This illustration is also on the cover. An angel in a pink gown, yellow hair, and large wings appears to the shepherds. The angel gives the message, "Fear not..." while standing among the sheep. The shepherds find the baby lying in a manger with a cow, donkey, and sheep nearby. After seeing the baby, the shepherds are shown telling others. "And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child." A sweet-faced Mary and baby along with large images of a donkey and ox illustrate the text: "But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart." This large book might be on the coffee table to read during the Christmas season. Reviewer: Carlee Hallman
