This acclaimed picture book--originally published in 1984 and now being published in both English and Spanish editions--brings to life a stirring message of hope and salvation. Beneath the light of a brilliant star in Bethlehem, a "spirit child" is born to rescue the world from evil. He is Jesus, "savior of the people," and his story has not been told in these words for over four hundred years. This Native American nativity story from the Aztec tradition was rediscovered by noted scholar John Bierhorst and it is filled with vivid language and some of the most striking imagery of Caldecott Medalist Barbara Cooney's distinguished career.
