Item description for They Followed A Bright Star by Joan Alavedra...
"When an angel summons a group of shepherds and kings to a distant Bethlehem stable, the travelers cross paths with others whose missions are less glamorous. . . . These unsung heroes have also received orders from the angels, to tend the water, fish, bread and wine that Jesus will need in years to come . . . this lyrical picture book is illuminated by Wensell's radiant watercolors." (Publishers Weekly)
"A carefully composed translation and adaptation of a German nativity story. . . . The telling is formal and folkloric in structure, with a reverent, Biblical tone. The dramatic full-page watercolor illustrations use light to great effect. . . . A treasure for quiet family sharing." (chool Library Journal)

A very meaningful Christmas Story Dec 21, 2003
I actually wrote a play for the children at my church based on this play. They are porforming it as their their Christmas program this year. I highly recommend this book; it has a wonderful meaning, and is still a little different then the usual chistmas story we hear. the illistrations are beautiful too
