Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 1—The biblical story of Jesus's birth is told in the style of Clement Clarke Moore's classic poem, "'Twas the Night Before Christmas": "And out in the fields, taking care of their sheep,/Some shepherds were just getting ready to sleep./When all of a sudden, they had such a fright,/As a whole choir of angels lit up the night." Each of the baby's visitors are included in the poem which faithfully follows the Book of Luke aside from Mary's "Merry Christmas" at the end. Selivanova's realistic digital art is rendered in jewel tones with soft edges. Light emanates from the baby Jesus, as well as the moon. The resulting illustrations, paired with the calm, rhyming text, have a peaceful effect, making this a perfect choice for bedtime. VERDICT A sweet take on a Christmas classic with a Nativity setting.—Jessica Ko, Los Angeles Public Library

Review

In a skillfully composed text that mimics the phrasing and cadence of Clement C. Moore familiar holiday poem, Nellist presents a Nativity story that balances a lighthearted, anticipatory tone with an overarching reverence for the subject matter. Twas the evening of Christmas, when all through the town,/Every inn was so crowded, no room could be found, she begins, incorporating the animals of the stable, the nearby shepherds, and the visiting Magi into her retelling (The pigeons were nestled all snug in their beds,/ While visions of breadcrumbs danced and round in their headsand). Russian illustrator Selivanova evocative paintings feature soft lines and gentle shifts between sunlight, moonglow, starlight, and shadow--as well as light that seems to emanate from the newborn child. Her gauzy, muted palette and shifting perspectives (in one scene, the shepherds are seen from above, through clusters of angels and wings) fully immerse readers in the unfolding events. Ages 4 and 8. (Publishers Weekly)

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

Although I live in Michigan, USA, I was born and raised in a little village in northern England.

I grew up in a big old house, with two wonderful parents and seven siblings. My dad was the one who introduced me to the gospel. My mum was the one who encouraged me to work with children.

And at primary school, my teacher was the one who urged me to write. One day a week, I was one of the lucky few withdrawn from the classroom to sit in big, comfy armchairs in the teachers' lounge. There, in front of a roaring log fire, with pencil and paper at the ready, I would write.

Four long decades later, I would find myself living across the pond, married to a wonderful man, mum to four children and three daughters-in-law, and grandma to three bouncing boys and one gorgeous girl. And as if all that wasn’t blessing enough, I somehow became an author, despite giving up on my first book half way through.

And if you would have told me then, that this book would one day become a series, that I would begin a second series, and a third… I never would have believed you. The only possible explanation is that our great God is able to do immeasurably more than all I could ever ask or possibly imagine.

And to God, alone, be the glory.

5.0 out of 5 stars Precious new tradition!
Reviewed in the United States on November 24, 2017
What a wonderful idea Glenys Nellist had to tell the real Christmas story about Jesus in a way that reminds us of our favorite Santa Christmas story. Every Christmas I look forward to reading Clement C. Moore's "'Twas the Night Before Christmas", one of my all time favorite traditions. So I am thrilled to have this new book, "'Twas the Evening of Christmas" to look forward to as well. The story is beautifully told, and the rhymes are so lyrical and sweet. It is exciting to think that children will eventually know it by heart just as they do the other. The illustrations are just as enchanting, with everyone, including the animals, looking upon the baby Jesus with such adoration. It will be a precious new tradition for me and my family. Thank you Glenys!
