A charming, delightfully illustrated Russian folktale about a poor family who entertains an angel unawares.

The Miraculous Child is a charming, delightfully illustrated Russian timeless tale of a poor Russian family who entertain an angel unawares in a humble log home where a woodcutter, his mother, wife and children have almost nothing to eat, very little to trade or sell, and nothing for the Christmas Feast. The woodcutter encounters a little boy out in a field, shivering and cold. When he brings the lad into his home to share what little poor fare the family has, they discover that it's an angel they have invited in from the cold and a Christmas Feast is held that will never be forgotten.

Although the story has a Christmas theme, it can be read at any time of the year, as an illustration of the text of Hebrews 13:2: “Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares&rquo;.

Picturebook for preschool and up.
