I received this book in exchange for my review, but having read it to my 3 youngest boys, I would have paid for it.
It's a work of art, Alison Jay's paintings are beautifully timeless, reminiscent of Fra Angelico's masterpieces. See many of her other illustrations/paintings HERE
The words that tell the story of the birth of Jesus are as beautiful as the illustrations that accompany it. The author, Sally Lloyd-Jones, truly has a gift for captivating her audience through poetic script. To her credit she has written a Children's Bible and several other children's books. You can check out her accomplishments on her website: HERE
What is really unique is that the story is told from ALL the creatures' of earth's perspective as they excitedly proclaim, "It's time! It's time!
Charlie(2yrs) loved pointing out all the different animals on each page.
I am so thankful to add this to our Christmas book collection!
"Song of the Stars" will be available October 2011.
