Who is the baby?  Will more animals and humans arrive?

About the Author-

My thoughts-

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!!
