The distinctive water colour illustrations of Julie Vivas have delighted Australian children for years. I love reading The Nativity every year at Christmas time. Vivas's watercolours are soft but rich with delicate colour. I love reading The Nativity every year at Christmas time ome a tradition in our home. Julie’s illustrations make the wonder of the story come alive for us. Thank you for the gift of your vision. Format : large hardcover.

JULIE VIVAS is the talented illustrator of I Went Walking by Sue Williams as well as the Mem Fox classics Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge and Possum Magic. She lives in Sydney, Australia. In this beautiful book, warm and whimsical illustrations accompany excerpts from the King James Version of the Bible to tell the story of the birth of Jesus. Vivas' delicate, sure watercolors are a reminder that the humbleness of these people made the event more extraordinary-that the story is not only about the long ago and far away but about people with familiar joys and troubles.

A new (to me) favorite! I don't know how she combines all of these things, but the illustrations are beautiful in ethereal pastels, funny (boot-wearing angels who get stuck in trees), and so very down to earth. That's my favorite thing about them--this Mary looks like she's about to pop on her to way to Bethlehem and Joseph has to shove her up on the donkey. And after she gives birth, she is too exhausted to even shoo the chickens away--and Joseph gets to hold the newborn baby for once! She does such a good job of making the Incarnation feel truly human.

This is our absolute favorite Christmas book. The pictures are magical and bring to life the story of Jesus' birth in a beautiful and meaningful way. The text is straight from the Bible, which I appreciate and it gives us a perfect way to focus on what Christmas is really about. My kids, 4 & 8, love it.

I first saw this little book when our pastor brought it to share at a Trustees meeting a few weeks ago. I was blown away by the whimsical depictions of the familiar characters, but there was a certain level of realism to it as well.

Christ was, after all, born a human, from a mortal human mother, so I see no problem depicting him as such. The angel is approachable and friendly, rather than the usual white-robed scary "visitor from above." The shepherds look like shepherds might have looked in the day.

While this is categorized as a children's book, I think it works for anyone who just wants a short to-the-point depiction of the miracle of Christ's birth.

gifted to an expectant mother. Think it's the most lovely, enchantingly illustrated book.
I've had the hard back since it first came out. Buy as gifts at Christmas time.

These are the most beautiful and intriguing drawings. Really lovely and enjoyable. The construction of the book is very thin and slightly oversized so a little floppy to hold and turn pages. It sadly won't hold up for too many seasons.

I have given several of these books as gifts - it is a beautiful rendition of the Nativity Story. The pictures are quite beautiful. My favorite is the photo of the Annunciation...Mary and the angel are sitting down having a cup of coffee together.

I received this book as a gift, and I absolutely love Julie Vivas' artwork. I like the Mary she portrays - having a cuppa with the scruffy non-intimidating angel, the homely details of laundry and emptying sand out of shoes. My favorite picture in the whole book is the one where Joseph is hefting a very pregnant Mary onto the donkey, and both of them are highly amused by the situation.

My only complaint is that I would personally prefer a more contemporary text rather than the traditional King James Version. Otherwise, this book is perfect. For the record, the newer edition's cover photo just doesn't have the same impact as the bright red around Mary and Joseph. The newer one is less colorful and shows the shepherds peering in at the baby.

Highly recommend!

I purchase this book for every baby that is born to our lives. It tells the Christmas story through wonderful fresh eyes, with all of the glory! I love that it uses the King James version for the text as it keeps the story rooted, and allows for more conversations when reading the book. The illustrations are what makes this book so wonderful
