This was a delightful book. My daughter and I read it together. We had fun learning about Miriam and exploring the illustrations.
I always enjoy Jo Parry’s illustrations, and this book was no different. There are some illustrations I’m not sure about. I wasn’t sure why there were butterflies and trees that were opaque.
I know there are many different Christmas stories with animals, but this one was different. I liked the domesticated cow, Mariam, with the wild animals. It was nice, because she and her cowshed were able to protect different animals and people.
I think this book would be great for children. Pick up your copy today!!
