About the Book:
A luminous Christmas picture book about the traditions celebrating the story of Christ that make the season a time of joy, love, faith, and light.
We come to the stable, visit the manger. We are the angels singing out, “Glory!” This is a season of faith. A time to hear and believe.
From paper snowflakes to silver bells, reindeer to wise men, Christmas is a season of joy and song, giving and serving, loved ones and light that can last the whole year through. With Jess Redman’s beautiful poetic text and Ramona Kaulitzki’s luminous illustrations, Season of Light is sure to be a holiday favorite for years to come.
“The illustrations are colorful and beautifully rendered… With less focus on Santa and more on people coming together for the holiday, this is a lovely read for libraries to add to their Christmas collections.” —SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL
“Christmas, Redman reminds us, means joy and wonder. It means loved ones coming together, it means people giving their time, their resources, and the gift of song, and it means sharing stories of faith…[Season of Light] exudes a sense of community.” —KIRKUS REVIEWS
