Father and son. A Nativity Story. by Geraldine McCaughrean & illustrated by Fabian Negrin. Joseph is often the forgotten figure of the Nativity scene: steadfast in his presence, but not able to fully claim the traditional paternal role. In this intellectually challenging work, McCaughrean explores a sophisticated theological issue from Joseph’s point of view, with the new father watching his sleeping baby and thinking ahead as to how he can properly bring up his son. The philosophical issue that Joseph struggles with is the complex idea of Jesus as both the son of God and as God himself.

Reviews:
  • Mallador
As our children came along, I began adding a Christmas book to the family collection each year. Now as a grandmother and many, many books later, it becomes more challenging to find something new that isn't twaddle, isn't the current TV or movie fad, or just the same as many other Christmas books. This story is delightful! I can't believe I had never come across it before. The narrator is Joseph, and I can easily imagine Joseph having just these thoughts with the birth of Jesus.
  • Damdyagab
I bought this book about 2 years ago at a bookstore and loved it. So much is said about Mary, but what a responsibility Joseph had! This book gives a very realistic view, in my opinion, of just what Johseph might have been thinking as he looked into the infant face of God incarnate.
I read this book to others and they felt the same way I did. I tried to find it in bookstores, but couldn't find it anywhere until I checked Amazon. I found a used copy in very good condition for a very reasonable price.
  • BOND
I ran across this book by accident but fell in love with the message it gives in a childlike way about Joseph, his obedience, and what it must have been life to be the father with the awesome task of raising God's son.
  • Vojar
Best Christmas book ever.
  • Kendis
The wonderful thing about picture books is that they say more than the text. Yes, some of the vocabulary is beyond an 8 year old but it is caught by the older siblings or parents who may be reading it or listening in. I read this to my 6 and 12 year old children and it was a joy for all of us. The 12 year old was carried away by the art as well as the story while the 6 year old hear it more as another story. I was thoroughly taken in by the story and illustrations and the thoughts of St. Joseph as a parent but also an adult who realized that life is not all under his personal control.I highly recommend this one. It will be going into our library for St. Joseph's feast day to be read each year.

I love this book, which we happened across at the library in the spring and enjoyed reading even though it was "out of season." I'll be buying several copies for gifts when Christmas rolls around. It's a beautiful, poetic imagining of what thoughts Joseph may have had the night Christ was born. Yes, as some reviews point out, the language is a bit lofty compared to many picture books . . . but we've found that our preschooler picks up much more than we might give him credit for, so I don't see that as a drawback at all. These are lofty spiritual concepts, and the author does them justice. (Written from a Catholic/traditional Christian viewpoint. We're Orthodox Christians and found it perfectly appropriate.)
  • Skiletus
A book that stirs the imagination and delights the heart. My toddlers and preteens enjoyed it as well as myself! I was pleasantly surprised at the authors ability to express the quandry that Joseph experienced given the task of raising infant Jesus, and her touching conclusion. Wonderful gift book!!
This is a heart warming book from Joseph's view. Imagine being the earthly father of the Son of God! The story is humorous and touching. Great book!
