About the Author:

Sharon McGinley has lived in Alaska, Massachusetts, and Florida, and now makes her home in Gibraltar, Pennsylvania, with her two cats, Luna and LIttle Girl. Her paintings have been exhibited in galleries nationwide and her illustrations have graced the pages of numerous books for children, including My Grandmother's Journey by John Cech and Pigs Will Be Pigs by Amy Axelrod.

From Booklist:

Ages 3-5. This joyful picture book takes as its text the Christmas carol "The Friendly Beasts," in which the donkey, the cow, the sheep, the camel, and the dove tell of the parts they played in the Nativity story, ending with the verse "Thus every beast by some good spell, / In the stable dark was glad to tell / Of the gifts they gave Emmanuel, / The gifts they gave Emmanuel." Alive with color, movement, and the decoratively conceived forms of animals, angels, and people, the gouache paintings in a folk-art style echo the rhythmic sense of the carol. Repeated strokes of paint form strong, subtle dynamics within the paintings, while color and pattern brighten the wide, double-page spreads. The two closing spreads, illuminated as brightly with animal motifs as the preceding pages, include piano and guitar music, verses for the carol, and notes on the origins of the melody and the lyrics. A celebration of the season, this picture book invites those who share it to sing along. Carolyn Phelan
