Jesus is Born by Sophie Piper

The story of the Nativity is read in homes, schools and churches all through Advent, year after year. The emotion and detail in Anne Yvonne Gilbert's exquisite illustrations will make this picture book of the first Christmas stand out in the memory with all the awe and splendour that the birth of Jesus evokes. The retelling follows the traditional sequence of episodes and echoes the language of the Gospels themselves. A picture book to be treasured.
