A beautiful and lyrical Nativity story, told in Mary's words, and focusing on the thoughts, hopes and fears of a young mother-to-be, about to give birth in a strange land. As the familiar story of the birth of Jesus unfolds, so the mother's love for her child grows and blossoms. The angels rejoice, the shepherds pay homage, the three kings bestow their gifts. But for Mary there is the overwhelming peace, love and joy of motherhood.
This reissue of a favorite Christmas picture book, previously entitledLittle One We Knew You'd Come, is published with a beautiful new text by Jackie Morris.
