Review of "Night Of Great Joy" by Mary Engelbreit

The illustrations got me on this one!  I have to admit I was drawn to it initially by the cover which also has glittery texture on it.  Mary's illustrations are just beautiful!

Basically it is the story of Jesus' birth presented as a play by children on stage.  The expressions on the children's faces are so amusing - you almost feel like you are watching a children' christmas play.  The fonts are really bright and colorful.

I just love this whole book!  I would definitely recommend it!  Has a uniqueness about it, which is always great for christmas books focusing on Jesus.
