That Blessed Christmas Night is portrayed so beautifully by Deborah Perez-Stable. As you turn each page, the scenes just come to life! Beautiful work! I recommend that you also purchase Baby's Song, another work of art by Deborah Perez-Stable.

I collect children's Christmas books and this is a new favorite in my collection. I have many books that recount the manger story, but this one stands out. The artist, Deborah Perez-Stable, chose to depict children in a Christmas pageant representing all of Bethleham's finest folk. The result is heartfelt. Not only that, but Chaconas' rhyming text sings with a beauty all its own.
