Beautiful and descriptive, you and your family will be drawn into this retelling of the first Christmas. With gorgeous paintings and a rhyming text you will see that despite being called "The Silent Night," it wasn't very quiet. Hear for yourself the hustle and bustle of Bethlehem, the sounds of the animals inside the stable, and Mary's groans as you are swept into the story and find yourself reminded of the true meaning of Christmas. A wonderful classic that is perfect for any family's library.
