5th Day of Christmas Book Review

The Twelve Prayers of Christmas
by Candy Chand
illustrated by James Bernardin

This book is beautifully written and illustrated. I was drawn to it at the bookstore. I actually stopped, thumbed through it, and then had to read it. I thought it was spiritually uplifting to read what might have been in the hearts of Mary, Joseph, the Wise Men, shepherds, and even the animals that were witnesses to Christ's birth. Each page is a prayer of a different individual, each with a unique perspective on the happenings of that first night. I would highly recommend it to families as a Christmas Eve read aloud.

My Rating

Overall: 5 stars for sure.

Objectionable Content: none

This is a brand new book published this year, so it may be a bit hard to find (I'd look for it in a bookstore instead of the library.)
