Adorable illustrations accompany whimsical rhymes. A great introduction to the Christmas story for little ones, and a fun read for the rest of us!" - The Fairie Review "Beautifully illustrated... .I can't stop talking about the illustrations." - Wayne McCoy, Brain Shrapnel blog"A beautiful, poetic rhyming version of the traditional story of Mary and Joseph. It is a good introduction to the biblical story for children... .A wonderful book for any church library or family library that celebrates and believes in this aspect of Christmas." - Carla Johnson-Hicks, educator "Could very easily be a book that is read every Christmas whilst children are young. A lovely little read." - Donna Maguire, educator "Van Hooft's simple language and sturdy rhymes sustain a tender, comforting mood ('There is no crib, no cradle,/ just a manger full of hay./ But a burlap sack becomes a blanket,/ and the baby sleeps away') and Leever's smiling cast of humans and animals extends the joyful tone." - Publishers Weekly"A pleasant ... purchase for those who want a version light on religious mysticism but with a happy message of 'love, and peace, and light." - School Library Journal "Van Hooft's simple language and sturdy rhymes sustain a tender, comforting mood ("There is no crib, no cradle,/ just a manger full of hay./ But a burlap sack becomes a blanket,/ and the baby sleeps away") and Leever's smiling cast of humans and animals extends the joyful tone." - Publishers Weekly"
