Book Synopsis



This gorgeously illustrated picture book features a lyrical retelling of the birth of Christ, written in the style of 'Twas the Night Before Christmas.'Twas the very first Christmas when all through the town, not a creature was stirring -- there was not a sound.

This beautiful retelling of the birth of Jesus celebrates that joyous night in Bethlehem so long ago. The poem begins with the arrival of Mary and Joseph in Bethlehem and moves through Christ's birth, the angels' appearance to the shepherds, and the visit by the Wise Men. The simple, yet elegant, verses will appeal to little ones and are accompanied by the rich oil illustrations of Christine Kornacki.
