Book Review: "A Night of Great Joy"
Mary Engelbreit presents A Night of Great Joy, a delightful picture book that celebrates the joyful season of Christmas. This book tells the story of the nativity through the performance of a children’s Christmas pageant. With adorable illustrations and simple storytelling, Engelbreit paints a wonderful picture of the night that Jesus was born.
A Night of Great Joy recalls that fateful night with wonder and awe. From the arrival of Mary and Joseph in Bethlehem to the gathering of many before the baby Jesus, this holiday treasure leads children through the tale of the birth of Jesus, guiding them with the star of Bethlehem.
Mary Engelbreit, New York Times bestselling illustrator of the blockbuster Christmas classic The Night Before Christmas, brings readers a new holiday picture book that’s sure to become a family favorite.
This book had me giggling because of the pictures. As you read the story and imagine the story like a narrator in a play and then look at the pictures you see characters with many different facial expressions.
My children enjoyed listening to the story. They also pointed out some of the kids in the story especially the girls who looked a bit mad at another girl. So we had to talk about being loving in all situations.
Overall, this is a great book to add to your Christmas reading list!
