Wonderfully written story and has 20 beautiful illustrations to go along with the 20 possible circumstances of Jesus birth. If HE could be born as an Eskimo baby , why not as an Indian baby , a Black baby . If HE could be born in a stable why not in a fisherman's hut , a railway freight car , a shack , in a cowboy's barn , in an abandoned shed. Very enjoyable and thoughtful book to read at Christmas .
