Item description for One Winter's Night by John Herman...

Martha is only a cow, but even a cow needs a safe, warm place on such a cold, snowy night-especially when she is about to give birth. She finds a house, but it is deserted. She finds a barn, but it is locked. Meanwhile, in a parallel story depicted only through art spots, a man and a woman and a donkey make their way across these same wintry fields. At last, Martha follows a star in the east to a shed . . . but she is not alone there. The man and woman are sheltering there too, and in a wonderfully mysterious way, another baby is about to be born this winter's night.

Leo and Diane Dillon's art blends warmly with John Herman's lyrical text as parallel journeys of two very special mothers merge in this soft, gentle tale about one miraculous night.

Reviews - What do customers think about One Winter's Night?

Wonderful Story  Jul 14, 2006
I read this book to my little sister when we got it from the library. The story is well-written and conveys a great message. It's pace and wording flows easy when reading aloud, and I highly recommend it for younger kids.
Gloriously soothing  Nov 24, 2004
This is a very gentle story, enthrallingly soothingly told, with illustrations that make you feel cozy despite the preponderance of snow depicted on every page. The parallel between Martha the cow's birth story and the sparely told Nativity is just right--not overdone, never preachy. The willingness of the human couple to exercise concern for Martha is a nice touch and lends a magical feature to the story. My 15-month-old son is just beginning to develop an interest in story time, and this is one he insists on almost every night!
