Reviews - What do customers think about Small Camel Follows the Star?

Magic of Christmas  Jan 2, 2008
This book ia a good read-aloud book to create some magic for your children around the Christmas story and the wisemen from a camel's point of view. Illustrations add to the soft warm feeling.
Small Camel Follows the Star  Oct 28, 2007
In the new book by Rachel W. N. Brown, Small Camel Follows the Star, the author has related the simple, beautiful story of the wise men visiting Jesus. Told from an unusual perspective, that of the young offspring of one of the camels of the Magi, the story line is descriptive, spare and precise. Illustrator Guiliano Ferri adds life to the narrative through his skillful interplay of light and shadow and delightful expressions that shine in the eyes of the characters. Based on the scriptural account, author and illustrator portray the Magi arriving at the house of Mary, not the stable. I appreciate the author's attention to historical detail, rather than the usual sentimental baby-in-the-manger retelling.
