Book Review: Silent Night by Juliet Groom

✰✰✰✰ Take a walk through the forest with a mama bear and her cub as they share a magical Christmas Eve together experiencing the joys of the forest. As they wait for dawn, the two stop to appreciate the flowers, mountains, and stars and learn about love along the way.

The Bottom Line: This charming picture book weaves a story around the classic German Christmas carol, "Silent Night." Author Juliet Groom does a lovely job emphasizing the themes of love and peace as the bears experience a night full of wonder and hope. Tim Warnes' beautiful watercolor illustrations in soft hues of blues, greens, and purples add to the magic of the story. This is a great book to read at bedtime to kids ages 3 - 6.

Details: Silent Night by Juliet Groom and Tim Warnes. Hardcover published by Good Books in 2010. 32 p. ISBN: 978-1-56148-697-7
