Illustrated with stunning, jewel-toned art, and featuring a festive foil-trimmed jacket, this gracefully written picture book captures the true Christmas spirit in a way children can easily understand. In tender verse that flawlessly incorporates simple counting, Joy Hulme describes the night Jesus was born in a manger, surrounded by animals and with only straw to pillow his head. From the "eight" shepherds watching their flock to "five "angels singing, from "three" wise men bearing gifts to "two" parents looking with tender love upon "one "small baby, each image evokes what's most meaningful about this special day.
