That cold winter’s night, beneath the star’s light…
…a Little One came for the world.
I love this sweet story to preface the birth of Jesus. The animals creating a safe-house that is welcoming, including, and loving really captures the spirit of Christmas for me! I love the glittery effect of the illustrations, too.
This is a gorgeously illustrated, animal-centric take of the night baby Jesus was born, full of the Christian message that all are welcome, particularly little ones.
