Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Arresting illustrations mandate a good long look at this picture book. The text is a bit slight: gently lilting verse spotlights the animals' kind gifts to the Christ child upon His birth. But Vitale's stylized oil-on-wood paintings contain an appealing mix of reverence and joy. Ages 3-6. (Sept.)
Carolyn Phelan
Simple as a lullaby and lovely as a carol, this picture book shows the animals bringing gifts to Baby Jesus in the stable. Beginning with "The donkey brought hay for the Baby's bed, / the lamb brought fleece to pillow His head" and ending with, "Then, to a chorus of moos, baas, and peeps, / the cat and her kittens purred Him to sleep," Jewell's verse will charm young listeners with its satisfying rhymed couplets. The artist's technique of painting in oils on wood shows great sensitivity to the medium. At times, the paints are mere tints, highlighting the grains of the wood to suggest clouds in the darkening sky, while in other areas, the paint is more opaque, adding beauty and depth to the wooden canvas. Vitale uses line, color, and composition to achieve many different effects within the same basic setting. An appealing Christmas book that will soothe young children without putting their significant elders to sleep.

    Two years ago, I checked Christmas Lullaby out from our local library.  I thought it was a charming poem with lovely illustrations.  My then two-year-old son thought we needed our own copy.  I ordered one before the three-week check-out period elapsed. 
    Christmas Lullaby IS a charming poem.  It is simple, sweet, poignant and even funny.  It could easily be read to the very youngest of listeners.  And older ones will enjoy reciting it or reading it to you.
    The illustrations ARE lovely.  The medium looks like a water color or gouache on grained wood.  The effect is stunning, especially for the night sky.  Each page turn progresses the action closer and closer to the true reason for celebrating Christmas.  The artwork, like the text, is simple, sweet, poignant and even funny.  In short, the illustrations match the text perfectly. 
    We've been reading this book for three Decembers.  I predict that we will be reading it for many more.
