What Are People Saying about this Title?

"There is nothing like a nice new book for children about...Christmas! This new Pauline Books & Media volume is a translation of an original French book. I had my eight-year-old read it aloud to me, and she loved the illustrations that bring together the human and the supernatural very well. She loved the sweet, cute angels and all of the animals at the familiar stable! Biblical details are all present here: the story follows Mary and Joseph from before the Annunciation, their wedding and the trip to Bethlehem through the Magi at Herod's court, the slaughter of the innocents, and the Holy Family's tenure in Egypt. Mary is shown round and pregnant in the beginning, and breastfeeding our Savior baby in Egypt, all in a very natural, warm, and cute way. What a delightful book!"
