Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In Julie Vivas's retelling of The Nativity, first published in the U.S. in 1988, she pictures the Angel Gabriel as a friendly teen, who tells Mary of her role over a cup of coffee. Her soft watercolors capture the holy family as expressly human and earthy. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
From the Publisher

"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.
