Item description for Primera Navidad = First Christmas by Alastair MacDonald, Adel Nassief & Yanitzia Canetti...

Retells the story of the birth of Jesus, as seen through the eyes of Joseph's donkey. Features rhyming text accompanied by paintings of Coptic icons.

Publishers Description
La historia del nacimiento de Jesus es contada aqui, en Primera Navidad, por Zeke, el fiel e incansable burrito de Jose. Zeke nos ofrece su version de los hechos hasta el maravilloso momento del nacimiento del Nino Jesus, a traves de hermosos y divertidos versos. Asi lo cuenta el al final de la historia: Que noche inolvidable aquella que vivimos, cuando el Nino Jesus y yo nos conocimos. La historia ha sido ilustrada hermosamente por Adel Nassief, un talentoso y reconocido artista de la tradicion coptica cristiana que vive y trabaja en Alejandria, Egipto. Su trabajo, que consiste de veintiuna piezas en el estilo de iconos copticos, le da vida a esta historia como nunca antes y le da a la narrativa poetica de Zeke tanto profundidad como dignidad. Primera Navidad deleitara a adultos y a ninos por igual. Es la historia ideal para compartir en familia durante la Navidad; la historia ideal para leerles a los ninos al irse a la cama en Nochebuena; la historia ideal para recordarnos el verdadero sentido de la Navidad. A pesar de todo el ajetreo y distraccion de la Navidad moderna, Primera Navidad nos regresa a un tiempo muy especial, hace mas de dos mil anos, cuando el nacimiento de un ninito en un humilde establo nos trajo nuevas esperanzas y cambio nuestro mundo para siempre. Impreso con un hermoso color dorado adicional y encuadernado en tela, con la imagen tratada a mano y estampada en metalico, Primera Navidad esta destinado a ser un clasico navideno.
