If you have sweetlings in your life to whom you love to read, I have a recommendation for you ^_^ This gentle, lovely back and forth rhyme is a great favorite of ours every year. The children are captivated by the verse and by the wonderful pictures. We have been enjoying our copy since 2004, when "Mrs Susan" gave it to Meredith for Christmas.
My favorite page is the one with the star and the earth...
"This is the earth all round and bright
that glimmered with hope that first Christmas night
at news from a town called Bethlehem."
You'll have to ask the sweetlings what their favorite pages and verses are ^_^ and it's very likely that they will ask you right back ♥
