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.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Angela East

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

Emily Horncastle – age 11

We love Lovereading as my 5 year old loves to read new books before anyone else has a chance, she says it makes reading exciting!
