As the white frost lies thickly on the ground this morning in West Michigan, it seems like the perfect day to share our newest book trailer — for Lee Bennett Hopkins and Stephen Alcorn’s picture book Mary’s Song.
In this luminous, lyrical Christmas story, the earth bursts with praise at the Savior’s birth. Donkeys bray, sheep bleat, horses neigh, and shepherds come from nearby fields — though Mary simply wants to be alone with her sweet babe.
When quiet finally falls, Mary cradles her son and sings her mother-song, leaving readers dreaming of that silent night so long ago.
With its melodic language and rich illustrations, Mary’s Song is a lovely reminder of the meaning of Christmas and a welcome pause in the midst of a bustling world.
