“Tonight You Are My Baby is a wonderful story about the true meaning and miracle of Christmas.”
Children's Literature - Carlee Hallman
Two-line rhymes and an intermittent refrain tell the story of the birth of the Christ child. The mother's refrain: "Tomorrow you will be king, but tonight you are my baby..." emphasizes the human element of the story. The other-worldly element is told in the rhyme: "As I cradle you gently, the answer is quite clear, strength comes from you, my babe, in my arms right here." The pictures show a mother's delight in holding her baby aloft, cuddling him, and a cozy scene of Mary and a smiling Joseph sitting on the floor near the Christ child in a hay-filled, box-shaped manger in Bethlehem. Before the shepherds and Wise Men arrive, Mary says, "I smile into your loving eyes and give you one more kiss. This quiet time with you, my son, is what I'm going to miss." A lovely read aloud for the season. Reviewer: Carlee Hallman
