A celebration of Catholic Christmas in Latin America Nov 30, 2009
I have read this remarkable book, both in English and Spanish to my little children since they were babies. The illustrations are rustic and colorful, drawing people of all ages into the story. The Spanish used in the book is simple, yet beautiful -- fairly easy for the bilingual child to understand. The story causes one to recall the awe of God and his tremendous gift of Jesus to the world. It reminds us that, no matter how poor we might be, we are all called to bring Jesus to one another. This book is so dramatically illustrated that we use it on our Advent/Christmas altar as a backdrop to the various Nativity scenes we arrange there. BRAVO!!!
