Many were present the night Jesus Christ was born. Joseph and Mary were there, their hearts filled with peace. So were the donkey, the lamb, and the three Wise Men. Even the Star of Bethlehem looked on, casting a single heavenly beam of light upon the scene. This book gives voice to every creature present on that miraculous night and shares their twelve special prayers to the Christ Child.

What I loved the most about this book was the voice it gave to each of the many people who were present and involved in the birth of Jesus. Each person's story is told in lively rhyming prose which is simple and elegant, and written as though the person was saying a prayer, as the title suggests. I think the different perspectives offered were refreshing and enjoyable as another way to hear the story of the Nativity. I would highly recommend this book for Sunday School teachers to read to their students.

The illustrations and poems in this book are magnificent. Given to a special little niece for Christmas who loved it. Her father reports that they read it each night and that it will kept in her growing library. A true work of art.

I love the premise of this book. There is one prayer for each of the major participants in the Nativity Story. The illustrations look like old oil paintings, and Mary, Joseph, and Jesus actually look Jewish! No blond-haired, blue-eyed Jesus in these images. A beautiful way to read and tell the story of Christ's birth.
