Review: Long Ago, On a Silent Night by Julie Berry and Annie Wong

Is it too early for Christmas books? Yes? No? I'm going with "no".


Long ago, in a dusty barn, 
a mother took a child in her arms, 
wrapped him snug, made his bed in the hay. 
He was her gift that Christmas Day. 

There's no sweeter gift than a life so new. 
My best gift, little one, is you.

With these opening lines, the gift of the infant Christ is compared to the gift that every new baby brings. Beautiful text and breathtaking illustrations express pure joy and love from beginning to end. This book would be a great gift for anyone with a new little one in the house, but don't limit it to that. I plan to make it part of our annual Christmas reading list, but it will hold just as much magic any other time of the year.

Publication date September 3, 2019 - order it now!
