Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Mayper's poetic, joyous description of Jesus' birth bubbles with all the exuberance of a child opening gifts on Christmas morning. Shepherds hurry through the streets and wake a sleeping village to "Come see/ Come out and see" the baby who has "made the world new." Smiling children, families and respectful animals quietly gather in the stable to adore the newborn, then proclaim, "It's a time for joy and feasting!" Schuett's (Somewhere in the World Right Now) creamy, textured paintings of humble people dancing in the starlight say it all. Ages 3-8. (Oct.) Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Come And See (32 pp.; PLB Oct. 31; 0-06-023526-8; PLB 0-06-023527-6) An angelic voice calling out "Come and see," accompanied by music in the hills, opens this retelling of the Christmas story. Stilted comments in the voice of the young girl who narrates the story are awkwardly interspersed with repetitive angelic commands. The illustrations feature slightly stylized shepherds and townsfolk of Middle Eastern descent, a refreshing change from the anglicized characters that appear in so many nativity stories. Still, the overall result is lackluster; readers are never drawn into the festivities surrounding the miracle. (Picture book. 3-8)
