Item description for Christmas in the Barn by Margaret Wise Brown...

What child is this
Who is born here
Where the oxen
Stomp and peer...

For this larger, full-color edition, Caldecott Honor artist Diane Goode has created a new tableau of visitors to the barn that will please generations of new readers.

Reviews - What do customers think about Christmas in the Barn?

very disappointed  Dec 7, 2006
We own many Margaret Wise Brown books and love them all. So, when I saw a book about the nativity story, I couldn't resist. I was very disappointed with this book. The rhyming text doesn't flow in my opinion, making it difficult to read. The story is also inaccurate. It is not a book I plan to read often with my children.
Big disappointment  Dec 2, 2005
Unlike the other review, I did not find the similarities with The Big Red Barn to be laudable. It isn't that the style is similar to her other book - that would be fine. No, she practically lifts entire lines from The Big Red Barn. The result is an uneven lyrical quality, like she's trying to tell the story of Christmas but forces in little winks and nods to her other book. Also, it doesn't work that the illustrations clearly show a modern setting (at least a 20th century one), but she keeps referring to an "ancient barn." It renders the story historically inaccurate for a telling to children, which is a disappointment. I don't know how anyone possibly thought that modernizing the setting could do anything but serve as a detraction to the quality of this book, and risk insulting the religious sensibilities of some.
a keepsake book  Dec 15, 2004
What a wonderful telling of the Christmas story, or any birth for that matter. It's written in a similar style to the Big Red Barn and is just as lovely to read. It's a perfect addition to our Christmas books and would also make a wonderful baby gift.
