The Midnight Visitors by Juliet David; Illustrated by Jo Parry

Kregel has a fun new book out for Christmas called The Midnight Visitors by Juliet David.  This book gives a different point of view for the story of Jesus' miraculous birth.  The animals in the stable are the ones filling us in on what happened that night in Bethlehem.  Miriam the cow is snug in her warm bed of hay, when others animals come knocking on her door looking for a warm place to stay the night.  But little did Miriam know that a special couple would also come to stay in her small stable since there was no room for them in the Inn.

I thought that the story was cute in how it was told from the perspective of the animals staying in the stable.  It's a great way to get children to think about what it would of been like that night when Jesus was born in place that was probably smelly, and dirty.  The illustrations are filled with vivid colors and the animals look cute and cuddly. This book is for children ages 2-4 years old.  If you're looking for a fun, new Christmas book for your younger kids, make sure to check this one out.

Recommendations: I would check this one out at my local library rather than buying it.
How Many Stars: I would give this book 3.5 stars out of 5.
