Come and See: A Christmas Story

Monica Mayper, Author HarperCollins Publishers $14.95 (32p) ISBN 978-0-06-023526-0
Mayper's poetic, joyous description of Jesus' birth bubbles with all the exuberance of a child opening gifts on Christmas morning. Shepherds hurry through the streets and wake a sleeping village to ""Come see/ Come out and see"" the baby who has ""made the world new."" Smiling children, families and respectful animals quietly gather in the stable to adore the newborn, then proclaim, ""It's a time for joy and feasting!"" Schuett's (Somewhere in the World Right Now) creamy, textured paintings of humble people dancing in the starlight say it all. Ages 3-8. (Oct.)
