B Is For Bethlehem: A Christmas Alphabet by Isabel Wilner & illustrated by Elisa Kleven [Review & Giveaway]

ISBN: 9780824956745
Hardcover $16.99
About the book: B is for Bethlehem by Isabel Wilner, follows the letters of the alphabet to tell the story of the Nativity to young readers. The rich illustrations will depict the events, people, and places associated with the birth of Jesus.

My thoughts: Originally published in 1995, this is a 25-year anniversary edition. This is an absolutely beautiful book. The detail and rich colors are just a joy to see. The art is whimsical and yet reminiscent of Russian or Ukrainian folk art.
The classification of this book is Children's Poetry, Christmas Poetry, Christmas, Nativity and that it truly is. This is a reverent poetic portrayal of events and personages surrounding the birth of the Savior. The little couplets tell the sweet and rich story as no other alphabet book I've seen to-date.

I am delighted that they have published this 25-year Anniversary edition. Don't miss this one!

Begins November 12 ENDS December 1 @ 12:00 a.m. ET
