The Most Precious Gift(2006)
A Story of the Nativity
A Picture Book by Marty Crisp
Across the great desert the caravan follows the eastern star, in search of the newborn king. And at the rear young Ameer trails sadly behind. What gift, he wonders, can one so poor possibly give? Certainly nothing that might compare with the fine tributes of a merchant, or the gold, frankincense, and myrrh of kings. Not even Ameer's beloved dog Ra can give him any comfort. But in Bethlehem they find a king like none before. And to everyone's astonishment, though Ameer has no jewels or marvels to present, his gift of the heart outshines them all. Floyd Cooper's glowing artwork captures the quiet brilliance of the first Christmas story with renewed beauty. This unique telling of the Nativity, as experienced through the eyes of a child, will warm the heart with the true spirit of the holiday.
