Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carlee Hallman
This poetic reading, turned into a book, carries the message of acceptance of human differences in looks and in understanding of the angel's song at Christmas. Shepherds can be tall, short, and medium. They can be black, white, or in-between. They are curious about the wind and the people heading for Bethlehem. A sunset makes them marvel. The brightest star they ever saw pours light on them. Winds carry the angel's song. The shepherds follow the star to the child and bow, "then each went away to tell a different story of what had happened, because the three shepherds——those to whom the angel spoke——were different, as all people, everywhere, are different." Yet they were alike in believing the message. The King James Version of the Bible is quoted. Subdued colored illustrations appear in a box on each two page spread but aren't always comprehensible. This will make a lovely Christmas reading at home or with the church Christmas program. Reviewer: Carlee Hallman
School Library Journal
K-Gr 4–Originally published in 1991, this quiet story has been heavily edited and revamped for reading aloud. As a star shines down on Bethlehem, a voice on the wind speaks to three shepherds who differ from one another physically and ideologically. They are beckoned forth to meet a “babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger” and they all come away with a different story of their journey to meet the Christ child. Using scripture from the Book of Luke in the King James Version of the Bible, this book stresses peace among men and setting aside differences, especially at Christmas. The soft acrylic illustrations are improved (brightened and framed) and in some cases changed altogether from the original. Because of its small size, the book is best used in small groups or shared one-on-one.–Madeline J. Bryant, Los Angeles Public Library
