The Midnight Visitors - Juliet David & Jo Parry


5 Stars!

ABOUT THE BOOK -
Miriam was glad to be warm and cozy. There were so many people in the town but it was nice and peaceful inside her cowshed. Little did she know that she would soon be joined by Midnight Visitors . . . and not just any old visitors!
Snuggle up and enjoy the warm, soft feel the art and narrative bring to this delightful Christmas picture book with a difference.

MY THOUGHTS -
This was one of the best retelling of the birth of Christ for children I have read.
A gorgeous hard cover oversize book with beautiful bright colored pictures and a nice simple story to read.

I am an adult and this book kept my interest! Actually I had tears in my eyes at one point. But then again hearing the story of the birth of our savior always does bring a tear to my eyes. The story was simple enough for young children but interesting and so sweet that even older folks will love it.

I think anyone would enjoy this book. This would be a real nice one to read aloud on Christmas Eve, that's what I am going to do. A keeper to bring out every year and read over and over.




Thank you Kregel for sending me this beautiful book for my honest review!
