The Nativity (Paperback)
The biblical story of the Nativity is one about faith, love--and a miracle. With illustrations that are enchanting and unexpected, Julie Vivas reveals the human side to Mary's story, beautifully imagining the Angel Gabriel delivering the news to her, the exhausting journey with Joseph to Bethlehem, and at last the deliverance of the baby Jesus.
JULIE VIVAS is illustrator of I Went Walking,Let's Go Visiting, the Mem Fox classics Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge and Possum Magic, and several other picture book titles. Her distinctive watercolor style has delighted many children for many years. She lives in Australia.
"Vivas’ delicate, sure watercolors are a reminder that the humbleness of these people made the event more extraordinary--that the story is not only about the long ago and far away but about people with familiar joys and troubles."--Kirkus Reviews
