There is nothing like a nice new book for children about... Christmas! This new Pauline Books & Media volume is a translation of an original French book. I had my 8 year old read it aloud to me, and she loved the illustrations that bring together the human and the supernatural very well. She loved the sweet, cute angels and all of the animal at the familiar stable! Biblical details are all present here: the story follows Mary and Joseph from before the annunciation, their wedding and the trip to Bethlehem through the Magi at Herods' court, the slaughter of the innocents and the Holy Family's tenure in Egypt. Mary is shown round an pregnant in the beginning,and breastfeeding our Savior baby in Egypt, all in a very natural, warm and cute way.
