Award-winning illustrator Ivan Gantschev has a special genius for snow-filled settings as fans of his feisty Snow Leopards already know. In this deep winter tale, Rabbit is running to avoid some Christmas Day hunters when he falls into a snow covered cave--right on top of a hibernating bear! Roused from hibernation, Bear tells Rabbit about a strange dream of a woman giving birth on a starlit desert night surrounded by animals. Rabbit realizes that Bear has had a Christmas dream. Rabbit tells his new friend about the birth of Jesus on that night long ago. Perfect for Christmas sharing, this story shows the birth of Jesus from a truly unique perspective. Gantschev's warm watercolors give a feeling of coziness and brightness that is sure to appeal to parents and children alike.
