The biblical story of the Nativity is one about faith, love–and a miracle. With illustrations that are enchanting and unexpected, Julie Vivas reveals the human side to Mary’s story, beautifully imagining the Angel Gabriel delivering the news to her, the exhausting journey with Joseph to Bethlehem, and at last the deliverance of the baby Jesus.
The illustrations in this book are absolutely beautiful and really add to the perspective of the story! This is such a sweet retelling of the nativity.
This is a beautifully rendered version of the story of the nativity, told in Biblical language. I love how much character and personality the illustrations have (angels with torn wings and boots, a Mary that actually looks increasingly pregnant, etc.)
