A sprinkle of stars A flock of sheep A shadowed wall. A host of angels A warmth of doves A royal crown. A father's smile. A mother's touch. And a black baby Jesus. In a series of simple, evocative images, W. Nikola-Lisa takes readers on a journey toward the Nativity, with a black baby Jesus as its centerpiece. Synthia Saint James's vibrant colorblock paintings capture the mystery and anticipation of this journey and of the birth of a newborn king.
