How Many Miles to Bethlehem? by Kevin Crossley-Holland is the coming together of all the traditional characters from the Nativity Story; from Mary, to the ox and donkey, and the wise men. The story is told by each character having their own voice, done in first-person, about the coming of baby Jesus. The most beautiful thing about the picture book was the artwork done by Peter Malone.

How many miles to bethlehem? By Kevin Crossley-Holland. Illustrated by Peter Malone. Arthur A. Levine/Scholastic. All ages) The story of the Nativity is told briefly by many who were there, including Mary, the innkeeper, some of the animals, the brightest star and the Wise Men.

Beautiful illustrations. Happy to add it to our Christmas library.

"How Many Miles to Bethlehem?" is a 10 5/8 inch by 10 5/8 inch 22 page beautifully illustrated poetic rendition of the first Christmas Story. This children's picture book is filled with either full page or almost full page full color illustrations throughout the entire book. The illustrations take on a Byzantine character. The individuals in the pictures are portrayed with darkened skin. One is somewhat taken back by the color and shape of Mary. She is rather dark skinned and is rather tall and fat. The artist is probably trying to portray her as a woman with child. This portrayal is not the usual picture we have of Mary and to the traditionalist, may be disturbing or uncomfortable.

The non- rhyming poetic story is told from the first person point of view of the major characters in the Christmas story - Mary, the Innkeeper, the ox, the donkey, the shepherds, the brightest star, the wise men, Herod the King, the child and King - Jesus, the lamb and the angels. Strangely though, Joseph is missing in this anthology of first person voices. While this story can be enjoyed by reading it, the most value comes by hearing it read aloud. It would be a wonderful book to read to your children during the Advent season. Children in a classroom setting or Sunday School setting would love to hear the story. I really love the ending page and believe it sums up the whole Christmas message perfectly - "I am the Light of Light. The baby who will cradle the world. In your heart, hold me. I will never leave you."

This is truly a beautiful children's picture book - not only in pictures, but beautiful language as well. Each page has just the right amount of text with the illustrations. This book should be shared in families during the wonderful Christmas Season.

How Many Miles to Bethlehem?, written by Kevin Crossley-Holland and Peter Malone, tells the age-old story of Jesus' birth, but with a twist. The story is told from many different perspectives. Each page, or double-paged spread, introduces a new character, each with a new voice.

The book begins with Mary saying, "I am Mary. Tight as a drum. Round as the lady moon calling out to me. We're so far from home, and my baby will be born tonight."

The book ends with Baby Jesus speaking, "I am the light of light. The baby who will cradle the world. In your heart, hold me. I will never leave you."

The author gives the point-of-view of the shepherds, the wise men, the angels, and even some of the animals.

The illustrations are done in colors reminiscent of a desert setting, mostly in shades of brown, as would be appropriate for a book of this nature. The paintings themselves are very formal, though; they look like someone set up the characters for a ceramic or wax Nativity set and then painted them.

What I Like: I like the different points of view given for the story - for Mary, the inn keeper, the shepherd, and even the animals.

What I Dislike: None of the story is told from Joseph's point of view. I thought that was a bit strange, as he is certainly a central figure in the story.

Even though I like the different points of view, written this way it makes the book sound more like a play than a story. That will make it more difficult for children to relate to. On the plus side, though, perhaps kids could actually use the format to create their own play.

Overall Rating: Good.

Age Appeal: Grades 1-3.

Christine M. Irvin - Christian Children's Book Review

Foiuost
It looks like I'm in the minority, and maybe I'm picky about books, but this one just didn't do it for me. (And that's saying a lot since #1 - I love books.... #2 - have been furiously looking for children's Christmas books with a Christian focus and #3 - could get it very cheaply.) Even the $.59 cost of this book was not worth it for me - the writing seemed, no offense, forced and awkward. I don't think it communicated in a clear, captivating way the story of Jesus' birth - I think the author started with a good concept but that's where it ends for me. I WANTED to like it, I really did - but I would recommend finding a different book for the holiday season.

My husband and I picked out this version of the Christmas story because we loved the poetic language and the pictures (which seemed true to the actual look and feel of the people and times, as opposed to other anglicized versions). Our son is only a year and half, so I wasn't sure he'd be interested in it this year, but he loves it! I don't know if it's the pictures or the rhythmic words, but it's become required reading every night before bed.

Phalaken
I'm compelled to write a review in favor of this book because of the review from TX. This book is beautifully illustrated and the analogies and alliteration make it wonderful to read aloud. Each page gives a different perspective on the miraculous birth. It will not be the ONLY book that will teach your child about the true meaning of Christmas, but it is a fresh take on the traditional tale. Probably more interesting for 6-8 year-olds than preschoolers. We plan to make this book part of our annual Christmas tradition.

I was looking for a book to introduce my 3.5 year old to the real meaning of Christmas. Unfortunately, this is NOT the right book to purchase. It doesn't flow while trying to read it to your child. Also, it doesn't explain the story in a format for a child that young. Even an older child wouldn't be captivated by this book. Basically it's boring.
