Children's LiteratureThe story of the Nativity is told in Spanish for a young reader. While the language is more complex than the usual board book, it also captures some of the elegance of the traditional retelling with child-pleasing illustrations. Watercolors appear to have been executed on wet paper so that the lines of the animals seen in the nighttime have a pleasant fuzziness. Pfister also uses foil to good purpose in creating the shining guiding star and the clothes and gifts of the wise men it guides. A pleasant version to read with a three-year old and a nice way to use the pictures to tell the story in your own words to a baby. 2004 (orig. 1993), NorthSouth Books, Ages 1 to 3.
