Miracles: Long Ago on a Silent Night by Julie Berry

Long ago and far away

A baby was born on Christmas Day.

This wonder was seen by a lucky few.

I see a miracle in you.

Julie Berry's lovely family Nativity story, Long Ago, On a Silent Night (Scholastic/Orchard Books, 2019), brings together the wondrous birth in the stable and the birth of a modern child. Both are miracles of a a very different and yet wonderful kind, gifts of love to both. The traditional Nativity story is juxtaposed with the birth of a son to a couple with all the wonder that a child brings to a family.

Long ago, in a dusty barn

A mother took her child in her arms.

as their gift that Christmas Day.

Wondrous, holy, strange and true.


tle one, my miracle is you.

ustrated with gorgeous full-page color paintings by Annie Won, this holiday book by the Michael Prinz award-winning Julie Berry makes a meaningful gift to a new family, a legacy book to read during the season of Nativity every year. "A story of welcome, brimming with joy," says Publishers Weekly.
