Booklist Review

PreS-Gr. 2. Amidst the numerous riffs on the Christmas story (often from the point of view of an animal) comes this straightforward, dramatic revisioning of St. Luke's gospel. The first page, which shows a Roman soldier nailing Caesar's decree to a door, plants the story squarely in a particular time and place. Bernardin's paintings, focusing tightly on the essentials laid out in the text, capture the shepherds amazement when an angel appears and their utter joy at the sight of the baby. The angel is no winged cherub creature but a large figure with arms outstretched, shining and magnificent. The story continues with a segment often left out of books: the shepherds spread the word of what they've seen, and Mary "kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart." The realistic art is the strong suit here: Jesus looks like a newborn, and Mary, serene and overwhelmed by love, seems made of flesh and blood. Make room on Christmas shelves for this joyful depiction of the nativity story. Susan Dove Lempke
