Silent Night

Susan Jeffers, Childrens Books Dutton, Joseph Mohr. Dutton Books, $16.99 (32pp) ISBN 978-0-525-47136-3

Also reissued, Susan Jeffers's 1984 Silent Night pairs the words of the classic carol with paintings of the Nativity. Her transcendent, large-scale compositions do indeed suggest a night when all is calm, all is bright.
