9780399231001: Silent Night

Silent night, holy night,
All is calm, all is bright!

It is a silent, snowy December night. Shopkeepers and country folk in the tiny Vermont village are hurrying everywhere, lighting candles, wrapping gifts, baking pies--getting ready. But for what? For Christmas Eve? Or is there more?

The Miller family knows there is! Pa and the boys, little Andy and Jamie, rush to the train station through the blizzardy twilight to pick up Grandma Stokes. Old Paul, the hired hand, rides to get Doc Herrick. Mama's quilty friend Tinker won't leave her side. They all know something truly wonderful is going to happen this Christmas Eve, snow or no snow, right here at Miller farm.In his unmistakable style, world renowned folk artist Will Moses brings Christmas to a Vermont village in an original story that the entire family--boys and girls, mothers and fathers, grandparents, aunts and uncles--can share by their own candlelight year after year.

About the Author:

Painting is as much a part of the Moses family tradition as the family homestead in Eagle Bridge, New York. There Will Moses has painted since he was a little boy, learning firsthand from his grandfather, folk artist Forrest Moses, who learned from his mother, Anna Mary Robertson Moses, better known as Grandma Moses. Developing his own folk style, Will has become an internationally beloved artist in his own right, his art displayed in collections throughout the world, including that of the White House.

His first picture book, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, a retelling of Washington Irving's famous tale, was published by Philomel in 1995.

Will Moses' studio is at the Mount Nebo Gallery and Farm in Eagle Bridge, where he lives with his wife, Sharon, and their three children.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 1-4. Using the words of "Silent Night" as chapter headings, Moses tells the story of a family celebrating the Christmas Eve arrival of a baby girl. The day is filled with urgency and excitement, as Grandma arrives on the train, the hired hand rushes for Doc Herrick, and the family members trim the tree as they wait for the big event. When the baby arrives, relatives and friends each give her a small gift, except for Andy, who has nothing ready. Before he goes to sleep, he lays his skates down next to his new sister, promising, "Someday, I'll teach you to skate just like me." Moses's glorious folk-art paintings capture the 19th-century Vermont setting: the snow-swept landscapes, the quaint village and horse-drawn sleighs, and the cozy interiors of the old farm house. Readers will enjoy the understated story and pore over the gorgeous artwork for years to come.
