The Nativity

Cover
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2005 - 36 Seiten
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.

First published in 1988, with text from the King James Version of the Bible, this Christmas classic is imbued with warmth and love in a stunning, redesigned edition that is sure to win the hearts of a whole new generation of young readers.
