A woman is granted the honor of being midwife to Mary during the birth of Jesus.


Rebecca – Midwife to the women of Bethlehem
Rachel – Her assistant.


This was a very sweet story, and with the Christmas Holiday coming up would be a great purchase for those with small children. I could easily see this becoming a holiday tradition with some families.

The book’s prose is nicely done, and the illustrations by Diane Lucas help bring the story to life. For those who celebrate Christmas, and love the Christmas story, I think you’d like this book which gives a different perspective view of that night.
