The Animals' Christmas Carol, reviewed above) in Bunting's (Smoky Night

WE WERE THERE: A Nativity Story

Eve Bunting, Author, Wendell Minor, Illustrator , illus. by Wendell Minor. Clarion $16 (32p) ISBN 978-0-395-82265-4

The creature parade to Bethlehem continues (see The Animals' Christmas Carol, reviewed above) in Bunting's (Smoky Night) somewhat self-conscious poems about the lowliest beings to have witnessed Jesus' birth ("I am Rat./ Colorless/ as darkening dirt"). Minor's (Pumpkin Heads!) shimmering watercolors, lit as if by moon and stars, capture desert vistas and the distinguishing characteristics of Snake, Cockroach, Scorpion, Bat and others who traveled afar to be present, if unnoticed, at the Nativity. Ages 4-8. (Sept.)
