A lovely collection for those who wish to emphasize the Christian nature of the holiday, worth savoring slowly during the Christmas season.

A luminous addition to poetry collections.

The poems convey both the majesty and intimacy of that night [when Christ was born]. Decorative mixed-media illustrations highlight each animal on its own double-page spread.

This charming collection represents the majesty and wonder of a special night celebrated by Christians throughout the world.

Helen Cann s lovingly detailed artworks (watercolor and mixed media) add to the warm traditional feel of the collection, and create, with the sound of the poems, a book to carefully relish.

Warm and satisfying, this is a top choice for holiday gift-giving or sharing in a classroom, church, or library.

Captivating color illustrations of each animal complement the humble poems. . . . Highly recommended.
