Whooo better than a baby barn owl to deliver a bird's-eye-view of the Nativity? While the baby Jesus, Mary, Joseph and the animals sleep in the stable, Baby Owl and his mother are just waking up for their usual nighttime breakfast. As the feathered youngster inquires about "that baby sleeping in the nest below," Mama's soothing answers provide a lilting, lullaby-like rendition of the first Christmas. Hillenbrand's (Down on the Farm ) starry mixed-media night skies and a shadow-filled barn serve as backdrop for wide-eyed owls and the peaceful Holy Child. Perfect for Christmas Eve sharing with little ones. Ages 3-6. (Sept.)
