Reviews - What do our customers think?
Beautifully illustrated Christmas classic  Nov 15, 2007
This is a gorgeously done telling of the 12th Century carol. The drawings make some of the language more understandable to modern readers. Sweet book for teaching the song to younger children.
Awesome pictures, great hymn   Jan 15, 2007
I loved the pictures. My son (7 y.o.) read the book in school and asked for it for a Christmas present. I am very pleased
Great for all ages.
A Gift of Love  Oct 9, 2005
I have loved this Christmas carol since my children learned it in their Episcopalian school. It captures the essence of the of yourself is the most precious gift of all. Each "beast" in the stable honors the Christ child by giving of itself. What a powerful message illustrated by one of the finest authors/illustrators, Tomie dePaola. I have urged every parent I know to purchase a copy.
Enchanting illustrations for a sweet carol  Dec 20, 2004
This book is an eyeful! Tomie dePaola's gorgeous illustrations to this simple story have a sort of pre-Raphaelite glow to them, and the animals' faces seem almost soulful. I also appreciated the music in the back that enabled me to sing the words rather than simply telling them. Reading the book to a one-year-old, I would prefer that more of the pictures actually show the baby Jesus rather than implying his presence, which is a little hard to explain to a very young child. But all in all, it's a lovely Christmas book for children and lovers of Christmas carols alike.
Sweet Story -- Sweet Carol  Nov 16, 2001
I believe this is a 12th Century French Carol -- and not an old English Carol,as stated. Well, regardless of which side of the Channel it comes from, it's charming. If ever you have the chance to hear this sung by little ones, don't miss it -- it was meant for their sweet voices.
