The text from the King James Bible will be very familiar to many readers, but Rylant's artwork makes the story fresh and offers a unique new visual perspective.

All our holidays and special occasions are marked with books for the Grands. I've been reading Christmas books to find the perfect ones for our Grands this Christmas.

I actually like the illustrations in Navity. They suggest a child finger-painting the story they are hearing, which is charming. That said, I'm not sure the title reflects the story because while it does begin with the Nativity it jumps to the adult Jesus giving us The Beatitudes. It's all a bit jarring with no bridge between the two except

But Mary kept these things and pondered them in her heart.

Um, what? How is that any kind of bridge?

I appreciate that Cynthia Rylant does not shy away from mentioning God, but this is quite confusing.
