Up until now, everything on my blog has been related to middle grade. But my dear friend and critique partner, Jeannine Norris, has a Christmas picture book, and tis the season for gift buying!
What makes this book unique is that it's told from Mary's viewpoint about the night Jesus was born.
I kiss your tiny fingers and little perfect head,
Lay you in the manger that tonight will be your bed.
The book is beautifully illustrated by Tim Ladwig, and has a refrain that children will repeat:
Tomorrow you will be king, But tonight you are my baby.
