In this beautiful book, warm and whimsical illustrations accompany excerpts from the King James Version of the Bible to tell the story of the birth of Jesus.
"Vivas’ delicate, sure watercolors are a reminder that the humbleness of these people made the event more extraordinary--that the story is not only about the long ago and far away but about people with familiar joys and troubles."--Kirkus Reviews

This was recommended to me from a fellow CASA (Child Advocate) who said she read it to her grandchildren every Christmas. I bought copies for my three sisters and 3 girlfriends to read to their grandchildren. This is a great way to start a tradition and a perfect book to tell the story. Beautiful pictures as well.
A wonderful book filled with illustrations that capture your imagination.
A wonderfully familiar story with outstanding, imaginative illustrations. A great gift for expectant parents.
