    I was immediately drawn to this book because of the beautiful art. It is unusual in a children's book to see this particular style and coloration.

    Reminiscent of Russian Christian icon artistry yet boldly abstract and modern. It will intrigue adults and enchant children.

    The story, so timeless as told in the Bible, is not cutesied-up nor downplayed. It is told in a straightforward and beautiful story form. It begins, "Long ago, in the town of Nazareth, lived a woman named Mary." After the visit from the angel, Mary replies "I will do as God wants." What an opportunity to teach obedience to God's desire and will for our lives!

    The entire Christmas story is shared in this lovely book from the annunciation through the flight into Egypt.

    This will most likely be a book brought forth yearly and used for readings to draw the family closer to the truth of what Christmas is - the birth of the Christ child, Savior of mankind.

    About the author: Mary Joslin is married and has 3 grown up children. She began writing when her own children were still young and has since written books that have been published throughout the world. For Lion these include Our Father, The Tale of the Heaven Tree, Do the Angels Watch Close By?

    About the illustrator: Alida Massari is an Italian artist specialising in illustration for children including picture books and other childrens publishing. Alida was born in Roma where she grew up, she now lives in Cerveteri where she has been for the past five years. Cerveteri is a little ancient Etruscan town; this is something that Alida finds inspiration for her illustration work, like the architectural details of the ancient buildings. She also draws inspiration from ancient art, describing her work as modern but with ancient atmosphere
