Engelbreit continues her exploration of traditional Christmas fare with this collection of Christmas carols, poems and short biblical passages about the Nativity. The biblical verses are drawn from the books of Matthew and Luke in the New Testament of the Christian Bible, with short selections describing the journeys of the shepherds and the wise men. The rest of the Nativity story is conveyed through traditional Christmas carols such as "The First Noel" and "Angels We Have Heard on High." Short poems fill in more of the Christmas story with familiar and rather old-fashioned choices such as William Blake's "The Lamb" and the traditional "Lullay, My Liking." Engelbreit's illustrations are filled with smiling children of different ethnicities, beautiful angels surrounded by glowing light, and traditional, sweetly pleasant illustrations of Mary and the Christ Child. Many of the illustrations are full-page, surrounded by intricate borders, and often have short quotes or sayings incorporated into the art. This is a collection that will serve children best by dipping into over several sessions rather than reading straight through. Engelbreit's legions of fans, many of them adults, adore her illustration style, and they will love this cream puff of a holiday offering. (Picture book/religion. 4-9)
