In the hills was sudden music
Come and see
And they all came--shepherds and townsfolk, neighbors and strangers, grown-ups and children--to see and celebrate the child sleeping in the manger. A poetic text and glowing paintings retell this well-known story with a simplicity and richness that fill the heart with peace.

Monica Mayper is a practicing poet and the author of three books for children, including Come and See, A Christmas Story. She lives in New York City and Orient, NY.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 2-Angels awaken shepherds, who in turn rouse the townsfolk and travelers, so that all may gather to see the newborn baby Jesus. Readers follow the people and animals as they make their way to the manger to admire the child. All the while, Mayper's poetic invitation carries the same refrain, "Come see," with slight variations in the second line. The simple text is particularly accessible to young children who are just learning about the Nativity. Internal rhymes with an unstudied rhythm keep the sentences flowing as a crowd gathers outside the stable. Schuett's double-paged illustrations are full of soothing, saturated colors, plus some touches of bright yellow and gold to provide a nice contrast and lend extra sparkle to the night. Men, women, children, and animals greet the baby with wide smiles. They join hands and form a large circle surrounding the stable and "all begin to dance." A peaceful and satisfying presentation.-M.M.H.
