Review: A Night of Great Joy by:Mary Engelbreit
About the Book:
Mary Engelbreit presents A Night of Great Joy, a delightful picture book that celebrates the joyful season of Christmas. This book tells the story of the nativity through the performance of a children’s Christmas pageant. With adorable illustrations and simple storytelling, Engelbreit paints a wonderful picture of the night that Jesus was born.
A Night of Great Joy recalls that fateful night with wonder and awe. From the arrival of Mary and Joseph in Bethlehem to the gathering of many before the baby Jesus, this holiday treasure leads children through the tale of the birth of Jesus, guiding them with the star of Bethlehem.
Mary Engelbreit, New York Times bestselling illustrator of the blockbuster Christmas classic The Night Before Christmas, brings readers a new holiday picture book that’s sure to become a family favorite.
Christmas is such a precious time of food and family. I love the time set apart to enjoy some great tasting food and having some downtime with the ones I love. Mary Engelbreit, always has the best books and products. They are just simply beautiful. She is the Norman Rockwell of our time, I believe. She always has the most beautiful words and illustrations. Settling down in front of the fire with my family beside me reading one of her books is always a great idea.
This one talks all about Jesus and what happened with the story of the virgin birth but set in a Christmas pageant type form. This book would make a great coffee table book during the holidays.
**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the author.
