Read full description of the books:
It is always charming and fun to find books that you can read leading up to Christmas or even on that very special day. Some of my most favorite are seeing how people translate some of the most beautiful songs into a story-type of work while keeping the original at heart.
Tomie dePaola is one author who just has a beautiful and simple heart that shines through his works. The artwork is gentle yet amazingly simplistic yet heartfelt at the same time. It allows you to go into an ethnically different world while yet still being a part of the human race when you close the book.
In this particular book the story can be either read or sang (there are the actual lyrics and notes for the music in the back after the story) so it could be a fun book that could be read twice over. Furthermore there are three choir boys who lead the reader onto their adventure of exploring the Nativity from the viewpoint of those who have no voice.
Although we see the illustrations as being an reenactment of the Nativity it isn't the humans who are doing the talking part. Instead each animal included in the special event announces how it has helped the Christ Child so that no present seems too small or too indirect. All in all a beautiful message to share in the holiday season.
