It is a cold winter’s night, and Martha is looking for shelter. Even a cow needs a safe, warm place to give birth to her baby. The house she finds is abandoned; the barn she finds is locked. Then one bright star guides Martha to a stable. There, a man and a woman have found shelter as well—and another very special baby is about to be born. Leo and Diane Dillon’s beautiful art blends seamlessly with John Herman’s lyrical text in this tale of two mothers’ miraculous journeys on the first Christmas night.
