Publisher's Weekly Review:
"Joslin (The Goodbye Boat) is off to Bethlehem as well in a more traditional, rather labored retelling of the Nativity story, with mention of the political stirrings of the day. Cann's (Baboushka) watercolors, sparked by bits of collage and folk-art borders, bring an ancient setting into focus. The paintings often have a sunny golden glow befitting the angels and stars in the story. Ages 4-8. (Nov.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved"
