Item description for Silent Night by Susan Jeffers...
Susan Jeffers' visual interpretation of the world's most beloved Christmas carol is the perfect way to contemplate and celebrate the story behind the holiday. From the humble stable animals to the quaking shepherds and heavenly hosts, all of her richly colored figures are imbued with love and gratitude for God's gift to the world. This glorious rendering of the Nativity now shines even brighter, with its new jacket, elegant design, and a fifth-color gold ink throughout.
Illustrated by Susan Jeffers.

Silent Night Mar 26, 2007
This is the second copy of this book I have bought. The illustrator is a favorite of mine and the book is simply beautiful!
Stunningly and simply beautiful book for children and adults Nov 15, 2005
If this is not Jeffers best work, I need to see more of her stuff. This was recommended to me by this site.com and I bought it immediately even tho Christmas had just ended. I wanted it here for my grandchildren for Christmas this year, and I already have it out for us all to enjoy. The drawings are just beautiful and go with the simple song that the German organist Joseph Mohr wrote that has held the heart of so many people over centuries now. I don't think the man truly appreciated the impact his song would have, even on grown men fighting a war (World War I) to the extent that they called a truce for one short period of time. Would that we all could leave something so beautiful behind us when our time on earth is up. I think Jeffers has added to the beauty and understanding of the song for children in this artwork.
Nice but not Jeffer's best work. Mar 29, 2005
I've been looking for some excellant illustrated Xmas books and thought I would find it in this 'Silent Night' illustrated by Jeffers. I am a great admirer of Susan Jeffer's artwork but this just isn't as compelling as her other works. An 'okay' book but nothing great.
Stunning and simple Dec 22, 2003
I just bought this book, and I feel confident it will be a cherished keepsake. It's hard to find a book of the Christmas story that is brief enough for the youngest children, but the lyrics to "Silent Night" work beautifully. The illustrations are lovely and the text is very simple and familiar, but eloquent.
