Reviews: “Artist Mathew Hughes' soft, time-friendly paintings take us back to Biblical times. This is a sweet Christmas book that could start a discussion about what a young child might like to give the Christ Child for Christmas.” – Patricia Karwatowicz
I love the fresh perspective of Joseph's Cradle. In a day when a father's role is too often downplayed, a story from Joseph's point of view is perfect. Burkhart offers a tender tale about gifts for the Christ child, and Hughes gives delightful illustrations. I highly recommend this book for the children on your Christmas list.
