Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Already well known for his luminous landscape paintings, Kinkade has translated his own love of the Christmas carol "Away in a Manger" into a beautiful glimpse of the birth of Jesus. Set in a picturesque, imaginary village the children in the window look out on a Nativity scene erected in front of the village church. The various scenes from the carol are illustrated as if the reader has been transported to the stable where Jesus was born. The interiors of village homes show children sleeping to the line "stay by my cradle till morning is high." The village carolers raise their voices to call out others to join them in singing about that long ago manger. We see the children skating on the frozen river that winds its way through the village. Even the local dogs tilt their heads up to the heavens on this starry night. The back cover shows the "three wise men" arriving bearing gifts. This one will make a special gift book. 2005, Harper Collins, and Ages 3 up.
