One of the many joys of this Christmas season has been sharing this beautiful book with my two-year-old granddaughter, May. There's such a quietness and gentleness about the text and pictures. May particularly likes cooing with the doves, nodding her head with the donkeys, and singing with the angels. A sweet, quiet bedtime story that she enjoys over and over again.
