It’s a lyrical and understated account of the Nativity that will leave readers feeling as though they are witnessing something momentous.

Synopsis

See this small gray donkey,
this long, dusty road,
this promising star.

See this man, Joseph,
this woman, Mary.
Feel the frost on
this clear Bethlehem night.

Elegant, simple text and luminous art make this an almost hymn-like meditation on the meaning of Christmas and the Nativity story.
