Actually, I don't think it is that new, but I'd never seen it before. It is listed on my children's book list on the left. It is Nativity by Julie Vivas. Vivas is actually the illustrator. The words are exactly those of the King James version found in Luke. The pictures are beautiful watercolors and give a very touching and human portrayal of the birth of the Christ. My favorite shows Joseph straining under the weight of a very pregnant Mary while she tries to hoist herself up onto a very small donkey. While some might balk at it's seeming irreverence, I thought it wonderfully portrayed a God that works through typical women and men to bring about miracles.
