This Is the Stable
A gorgeous, poetic new version of the Nativity story
Wondrous things are happening in this humble little stable. The animals are gathering round. Shepherds and wise men and angels are coming from afar. All of them are flocking to see the Christ child, born this night in Bethlehem.
Illustrated by artist Delana Bettoli in the gorgeous tropical hues of the region and told in lyrical verses perfect for reading aloud, Cynthia Cotten’s This Is a Stable is a retelling of the Nativity that will be treasured for many a Christmas to come.
