Miriam was glad to be warm and cozy. There were so many people in the town but it was nice and peaceful inside her cowshed. Little did she know that she would soon be joined by Midnight Visitors . . . and not just any old visitors!

Snuggle up and enjoy the warm, soft feel the art and narrative bring to this delightful Christmas picture book with a difference.

My take on this book:
With plenty of people in town on a cold night  Miriam the cow is glad it's nice and quiet in her cowshed. When visitors start showing up to spend the night she has no idea that the most important visitor of all is about to arrive.
I loved this little story. The colorful illustrations allow the story to jump from the pages,  and the easy to read text will have children reading along in no time at all. I loved the various animals, it was easy to imagine them coming into the shed on a cold winter night.  A great telling of the Christmas story one that will capture the eye and imagination of young and old alike. A great gift, one that could easily become a Christmas favorite. 

A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review.
