A young girl describes a visit to see her grandmother in a Palestinian village on the West Bank
Riding in an open Jeep across the plains of Africa, author/illustrator Ashley Bryan found himself comparing the terrain to Jerusalem, and the bumpy journey to that of Mary’s travel on a donkey. And he came up with a question: Who built the manger where Mary and Joseph found shelter? The answer is conveyed in this picture book that envisions a young boy, a shepherd and carpenter both who, out of love and kindness, cleared the way for another shepherd and carpenter to be born on Christmas day. Told in gentle rhyme, Who Built the Stable? is a celebration of Christmas, of the kindness of children, and of the new hope born with each new baby. -- from publisher's site
