Reviews

  • Most collections have numerous versions of the Nativity, but this one is still well worth adding.

    - Booklist

  • Faithful to Matthew and Luke, but resourceful in its storytelling, this Nativity story is a quiet gem among the myriad Gospel adaptations available…Ferri’s dusty earth tones and round, stylized figures transport readers to the ancient Middle East. Playful touches, like an ever-present pup and childlike angels, enhance the appeal to young readers.

    - Publishers Weekly

  • This simple picture book details the birth of Jesus…a lovely version of the familiar story that will captivate readers and listeners alike.

    - School Library Journal

  • In Ferri’s pencil and watercolor illustrations, every shape has rounded edges, and the colors blend smoothly between light and dark values, creating a soft, serene atmosphere.
