About the Author:

Patricia A. Pingry, an editor with IDEALS has written many childrens books, she resides with her family in Nashville, Tn

From School Library Journal:

Grade 1-3?A traditional version of the story of Jesus's birth from the point of view of Joseph, the man who "provided the earthly needs for the Baby and His mother." Told in dialogue with a you-are-there insight into Joseph's motivation, the story introduces a gentle man who, though visited frequently by angels who advise him about where to go and what to do, is just trying to supply the best shelter and care for his pregnant wife. Shepherds and kings admire the baby before Joseph takes his family to safety in Egypt where they live for several years until it is safe to return to Nazareth. The illustrations, done before the artist's death in 1953, have the quality of children's illustrated Bibles of that period. Glowing and idealized oil paintings portray a very traditional view of the people and places. Some of the them are incongruously placed. For example, after several years in Egypt, Jesus is still a baby.?AC
